This cake has been a family favorite ever since my mom received the recipe from a neighbor. My husband's co-workers ask him to bring this cake for his birthday treat every year! —Teresa Marchese, New Berlin, Wisconsin

"I used 1 package pineapple cake mix. Instead of white or yellow cake mix. Then I used White chocolate pudding mix (instance) . It turned out real good. I was pleased..."

"This the best cake!! Its so light and delicious! I use butter recipe cake and I decreased the amount of cool whip so that the pudding flavor would be stronger. Its a must have!"
