This is a great cake that I made for Easter. I made it in a 9 x 13" pan, due to the fact that someone mentioned that the layer version might slide, and I had to travel with it. It was moist, and the flavor was great. I did make the pudding first and did not add the dry mix to the whipped topping, so thank you to the reviewer for the advice. Additionally, the stores are now selling a "reduced sugar" yellow and chocolate mix. I used the yellow reduced sugar mix, and it was great. I also used fat-free, sugar-free vanilla pudding and light whipped topping. I don't think anyone eating it had any idea, either!

Great cake, disgusting frosting! I think I must have taken the difections too literally, because I folded the pudding mix right into the cool whip, which made it all gritty; it was like having granulated sugar all through the frosting! I must say that I'm the only one in the house who thought that, though; my husband and daughter gobbled it up. I frosted two cakes separately; one with this frosting and one with a cream cheese frosting that I added some pineapple and orange extract to, and I thought that was delicious! The cake itself was to die for, and I'm definitely making it again. I did vary it slightly by adding a little grated orange peel to the cake, which gave it a little more orange flavor. Yummy! I'd really like to try this as a bundt cake with an orange glaze drizzled over it!

This has been my favorite cake since I was a kid! The only problem with it is that I can't stop eating it! When I make this to take somewhere, I make it as a sheet cake, and frost it after I get there. (sometimes if you make it as a double layer, the top layer will slide off when transporting it) I would recommend this for anyone...it's an incredible cake!
