Baylor Cake

This is one of Madison's favorite cakes. She even gave it the name because of it's fabulous yellow and green color! I made it for St. Patrick's day and realized then that I hadn't ever posted the recipe. Sic 'em Bears! :)

1 box lemon cake mix
1 (3 ounce) package lime jello
¾ cup water
½ cup water
1 envelope Dream Whip
1 (4 serving size) lemon instant pudding mix
1 ½ cups cold milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In small saucepan dissolve jello in boiling water. Add 1/2 cup cold water. Set aside, at room temperature. Mix and bake cake as directed on cake mix using a 9 x 13 inch pan. Cool cake for 20 - 25 minutes. Poke deep holes through top of warm cake (while still in pan) with meat fork or regular fork- spacing holes about 1/2 inch apart. Slowly pour or spoon jello over cake, making sure it goes into the holes. Refrigerate while preparing the topping.
In a chilled, deep bowl, blend and whip Dream Whip and pudding mix until stiff (3 - 8 minutes). Immediately frost cake. Refrigerate cake -- store in refrigerator.

TIP OF THE DAY: You can alter this recipe using any flavor cake mix and jello that you like.
