"This cake is cool, refreshing, light and lemony! Made easy with cake mix and instant pudding, a lemon poppy sheet cake is topped with lemon pie filling and then with a fluffy layer of lemon mousse."

I must be missing something!! I thought it was odd that the recipe calls for 3.4oz package of pudding when the grocery store sells 1oz or 1.5 oz. But I went with it anyway and bought 3 small b...

This cake was a HUGE hit with my family....I made it last year for Easter and they have demanded I make it again. I made this into a layer cake putting the lemon pie filling in between the two r...
