Directions
1.
Divide cake cubes evenly among eight 10- to 12-ounce, 4-inch-tall glasses. Or, layer all cake cubes in a 2-1/2-quart clear serving bowl or souffle dish. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup brandy.
2.
In a medium bowl, stir together the cranberry sauce and apricot jam. Spoon mixture over cake cubes. In a large bowl, whisk together pumpkin, pudding mix, milk, cinnamon and nutmeg until well combined. Spoon the mixture over cranberry layer.
3.
In a chilled large mixing bowl, combine whipping cream, sugar and 1 teaspoon apricot brandy or vanilla. Beat with chilled beaters of an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gently spread over pumpkin layer. Cover; chill for 2 to 5 hours. Sprinkle with chopped toffee bars or pecans before serving. Makes 8 servings.
