The United States version of a parfait is made by layering puddings, Jell-O, or ice cream, in a tall clear glass; topping the luscious dessert with whipped cream, fruit, and/or liqueurs.
I used ale glasses for the parfaits; ending up with 2 servings, use a smaller glass if you want more servings. For the finishing touches, squirt a dollop of Reddi-wip on top, scatter pink sugar over it, add a single bright-red maraschino cherry on top, and ~
1 box (3 ounces) instant vanilla pudding
Reddi-wip, Original Dairy Whipped Topping
Maraschino cherries, drained, one per glass
Let cool for several minutes, divide equally among parfait or dessert glasses.
Tilt glasses in a container, chill until set.
After Jell-O has set, prepare pudding according to package directions.
Chill for several minutes.
Spoon pudding into glasses.
Top evenly with a serving of Reddi-wip.
Decorate with sprinkles, top with cherry.
2-4 servings, depending upon glass size.
