This past Thursday we were invited to attend a pre-Thanksgiving dinner with friends. It is such a fun evening filled with good times, laughter and amazing food! Everyone brings their favorite and best side dish or dessert to share.
This year I made a pumpkin trifle, which has now become my new favorite go-to dessert. It is so simple to throw together! I made the cake and pumpkin cream cheese mixture the night before.
A few hours before our party I whipped up homemade organic whipped cream, layered the dessert and topped it off with chopped pecans.
This recipe uses 2 cake boxes of gluten-free gingerbread cake. You can find it at most stores or online here and check Amazon.
