Loved this cake!! Easy to make! I might try the pineapple next time too. When using cool whip, do you make the pudding first, then add it to the cool whip?

I tagged this on Zaar Tag! This is very good. Easy to make. I used cool whip instead of the whipped topping. I liked it alot. I am thinking of putting some crushed pineapples in it the next time around! 5 star for me!
