This takes a little time but oh so worth it! This is the dessert I make every July 4th.

**I use a little fruit fresh on the bananas to help w/ browning.
You can probaly use cool whip instead of making your own but I find that it doesn't hold up as well

1
Prepare cake according to pkg. directions and bake in a 9x13 pan. Let cool completely. Cut 3/4 of the cake into 1-in cubes. ( save for another dessert or just eat it, can't let cake go to waste)

In separate bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth( I find this helps avoids lumps)

Add cream chesse to pudding mixture.Beat until creamy. Fold in half of the whipped cream.
