I took the angel food cake initiative (probably made an entirely new recipe), but, 1 box of angel food cake, mixed up, baked in 2 9x13 pans, doubled everything else, and made 2 cakes, using the sugar free vanilla pudding (only 3 cups of milk, since it tends to come out thin), and cool whip light. I think i'll post the new recipe, giving you the credit, since the numbers are going to come out so different...but, thank you so much for my new go-to summer dessert

I make this same basic dessert, but I use an angelfood cake bar from the grocery store. It's a very good, light dessert and it's really easy to put together. It's good to see this posted here. I think you will really enjoy it, especially with all the summer BBQ's coming up.
