"I made this and I cant get the pudding right

Are you supposed to add milk or just the dry pudding powder with the pineapples and whip.
I made the pudding with the milk and pineapples first but its too watery. Help please"

"This recipe is a favorite of mine now. My daughter made it for a family gathering and I love it. She made it in a 9 X 13 pan and added sliced almonds to the top and maraschino cherries down the middle. Either way it is moist and tasty with a light yummy frosting!"
