This is also an old family tradition, we call it Jello cake. My personal favorite combo is lemon cake, lime jello, and some lemon pudding mixed in with the whipped cream to top it off. Yum yum, I make it all the time. It has a surprisingly refreshing taste.
My mom used to make this for us all the time. She wouldn't make a double layer though, just one layer in a 13 x 9 dish. Or she would make "Purple Poke Cake" with a blackberry jello, etc. You can use almost any kind of jello with cool whip. Very good stuff!
