My three children loved this dessert so much that they begged me to get the recipe. It's so easy to make and tastes so good. And making it ahead of time frees your hands and your time for other to-do's! —Ruth Dyck, Forest, Ontario

"'Way .too much cake -- or not enough pudding. But delicious nonetheless. Next time, I will use MUCH less cake and perhaps a large pkg of pudding. I also added drizzles of chocolate syrup over the top -- caramel syrup might also be good"

"My husband said "Don't make that again". It's maybe a kid or Ladies meeting desert... it was alright... I thought it would be to die for... but not in my book. Oh it'll get ate... but not the WOW I was hoping for. Sorry."
