    This cake is very good, however the Pudding mixture for the topping is very runny and didn't make for a good cake. It ran all over the place. Next time I make it, it will just be with the cool whip with the vanilla extract. Instead of chocolate sprinkles, I shaved bittersweet chocolate on the top.

    OOooo. Yummy! I used Whipped Topping from the Carton (I prefer fresher ingredients. . .) and Chocolate Pudding for the frosting, AND had chocolate pudding with the cake mix (was an accident that I put it in there, worked well -- can't remember what I didn't to balance. I think I had to cook it longer, and used a little more liquid). Tastes better than ANY cake I've had in a store. Any cake I've EVER HAD!

    This cake is so easy and tastes like you've spent all day making it! It's the best of both worlds. I have made this several times for different parties and family get togethers and each time I get a lot of compliments on it. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
