This is a really yummy cake with an unusual ingredient in the icing,pudding mix. I originally saw this made on Calling All Cooks on Food Network, and as if often the case, their online version was not exactly the same as what was aired on the show. So, I watched the show again and made my own notes and here is the version I ended up with. It turned out delicious :)
