Vanilla Berry Parfait

My Sister used these parfaits as one of the desserts at her friend's bridal shower.  My mom mixed it up and she just threw things together as she went until it looked the way she wanted, so I am attempting to sum it up as recipe that the rest of the world could follow.

For the Filling:
You take a package of Strawberry glaze, for pies and shortcake, that is usually found by pound cakes and or by the fruit and strawberries (apparently not at Walmart).  If you want to make your own glaze you can try out this recipe.  Cut up fresh strawberries, raspberries and blackberries  I would say about 3 cups of cut up fruit.  We had enough to fill up 15 4oz cups and make a pie for us to eat.
For the Pudding
You take one small heavy whipping cream and whip it.  As it starts to thicken add 1 large package of vanilla pudding.  Then as you mix add milk until it looks and tastes the way you like it.  Its not real thick and not real runny- my mother's very helpful words.  It is a little thicker than the pudding if you follow it from the box.  (If you find that it is a little too runny you just need to add another small box of pudding.)
For the Crust
For the Parfaits just crush up vanilla wafers and place in the bottom of the cup.  For pie, use 1 pie crust.

Then just chill until ready to eat.
