On my quest to find birthday cake ice cream—my favorite flavor—I came up with these easy ice pops. Now, instead of going to the store whenever a craving hits, I just head to my freezer. —Dawn Lopez, Westerly, Rhode Island
Pistachio pudding mix gives this moist cake a pretty tint of green. As it bakes, the outside browns nicely to form a slightly crunchy crust. The cake slices beautifully and would make a fun dessert for St. Patrick's Day.

This version may claim roots in Alberta, but the original was said to be dreamed up in a Nanaimo, British Columbia kitchen. They're three delicious layers of Canadian goodness. —Carol Hillier, Calgary, Alberta
This refreshing dessert layered with devil's food cake, a creamy pudding mixture, red berries and green kiwi is perfect for the holidays. I like making it in a clear glass trifle bowl to show off its festive colors.

This dessert makes a cool and delicious treat on a warm summer day. I bake a tender crust from a cake mix, then layer it with a cream cheese blend, chocolate pudding and whipped topping.—Pam Reddell, Linden, Wisconsin
