I love the ease of trifles and I'm always up for trying a new one! Of course with my obsession with pumpkin right now, you know that I had to try this one as soon as I laid eyes on the recipe! :) It turned out pretty good - not my favorite trifle that I have made, but definitely a hit amongst those that tried it! It didn't take long to polish it off...

1 (30 ounces) can pumpkin pie filling, not puree
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 (12 ounces) container frozen whipped topping
Bake spice cake according to directions. Let cool completely. Make vanilla pudding according to directions and let cool. In a medium bowl mix the pumpkin, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice together, then add the pudding. Crumble half the cake into a large bowl or trifle dish. Pour half of the pudding mixture and half of the whipped topping over top of the layer of cake. Repeat layers. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
