"This Carrot Cake Trifle is the perfect combination of delicious carrot cake with a light and fluffy frosting that we all love. With just a few basic steps you will have a simple, yet perfect dessert that your friends and family will love. Carrot Cake Trifles are one of the easiest trifles to make! There are only two layers to work with and there is very minimal prep required to make this dessert. Even better, the cleanup is very minimal! That’s my kind of dessert! It reminds me a lot of another favorite of mine, the No-Bake Strawberry Lasagna. Carrot cake trifles are one of my favorite desserts to make in the spring! There is something about the spice cake with the cream cheese frosting that is perfectly combined in every single bite. You will love the combination of the flavors in this carrot cake trifle with pineapple. If you are looking for a simple, easy, dessert that you can prep ahead of time to serve on Easter this is the one you have been searching for."
