Thanks for posting this here! I couldn't find it anywhere online. I made this cake last night as a test for next week's Christmas cake. I used golden butter cake mix and 2 pkg of unflavored gelatin. Then I added a few drops of food coloring to the gelatin so that I could do the pretty colors without changing the flavor of the cake. Mixed 1 pkg of vanilla flavored pudding mix with 16 oz. of Cool-Whip to make the whipped topping more stabilized. Came out fantastic!

Oh yum. I made this for our St. Patrick's Day meal, only I used only the lime jello. This was HUGE hit with my family. I remember having this cake when I was a girl, only I had forgotten about it. Thank you for the reminder, we loved it and the kids are already asking for it again.
