GREAT DESSERT TO TAKE TO ANY PARTY, POT-LUCK OR PICNICS.
I'VE EVEN MADE IT FOR CHRISTMAS DINNERS.
I KNOW THIS MAKES A NICE SUMMER DESSERT BUT I JUST FOUND THIS IN MY OLD COLLECTION OF RECIPES.
I MADE THIS A LOT IN THE '80'S.
PREP TIME ONLY TAKES A FEW MINUTES AFTER YOU BAKE/COOL THE CAKE AND MAKE AND COOL THE INSTANT PUDDING.
HOPE YOU ALL ENJOY.
