    1. Prepare ginger cake mix and bake according to package instructions (any size tin). Cool completely.
    2. Place the dessert mix in a large bowl. Pour in the eggnog and whisk for about 2 minutes. Refrigerate until the ginger cake is cool and you are ready to assemble the trifle.
    3. In a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in sugar and vanilla until peaks form.
    4. Crumble 1/2 of the ginger cake into the bottom of a trifle bowl or a large glass bowl. Spread 1/2 of the eggnog mixture over the ginger cake, then spread 1/2 of the whipped cream on top.
    5. Repeat the layers with the remaining ginger cake, vanilla dessert and whipped cream. Refrigerate 6 hours or overnight. Sprinkle the top with the cranberries and biscuit crumbs before serving.
