Recipe by Pam Walk

The cream cheese makes this wonderful. It has 4 layers and they work very well together. I had this at a potluck a long time ago it was so good I got the recipe from the person that brought it.

This is really good!! I used a yellow cake mix. The cream cheese and pudding mixture is delicious! The pineapple just makes it even better. But that's not all, you also have the whipped topping, and the nuts are a perfect touch. This cake can go to any event and win rave reviews!! DELICIOUS!!!!!
