This recipe is missing the pudding on top of the strawberry jello. Then let it set for 1 hr. Then put Cool whip on top of that and serve

I made this for my sister's birthday because strawberries are her favorite and we gobbledit up! It was so moist and yummy. I frosted it with recipe # 283186 Jello Sheet (Poke Cake) Frosting and it just took me back to my childhood when my mom used to make it! Thanks!
