2
cups milk
1
cup whipping (heavy) cream
1
tablespoon powdered sugar
1
package (10.75 ounces) frozen pound cake, thawed
1/4

1

Arrange about one-third of the cake pieces in bottom of bowl with slanted side, or arrange one-half of the cake pieces in bottom of bowl with straight side. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of the liqueur. Spread about one-third or one-half of the cranberry-orange sauce over cake pieces. Top with half each of the raspberries and orange segments. Spoon 1 cup of the pudding mixture over fruit. Repeat layers with remaining cake, liqueur, cranberry-orange sauce, raspberries, orange segments and pudding mixture. Top with remaining whipped cream. Refrigerate 1 hour before serving. Garnish with additional raspberries.
