This recipe started with my grandmother, but mom made it a lot too. It made an appearance at a lot of family gatherings. I've only seen two other recipes on here for this, and they are both different than this one, so I'm posting it. This is GOOD! If you want something yummy and refreshing, this is it! The possiblities with this cake are endless, as you can use a variety of fruit and pudding flavors, or flavor combos, in this cake. So have fun! And, enjoy!

**Prep time includes time to frost a 3 layer cake. If you want to make this even faster and easier, bake the cake in a large glass casserole dish and then frost that. My mom and grandmother did it this way most of the time.**
