I first saw this made on Paula Dean. I modified it somewhat to fit what I had on hand. We love this as an alternative to pumpkin pie and it stretches for large crowds. This can have many variations. Try lemon cake and lemon pudding. banana, use your imagination!

  • 4Assemble cake and pudding in layers by cutting the cake in small pieces adding a layer into the bottom of the bowl then a layer of pudding and a layer of cool whip till the pudding is gone. There will be some cake usually left over. Finish the top with a layer of cool whip.
