Wearing O’ Green Cake
- 1 package white cake mix
- 2 packages lime gelatin
- 1 cup boiling water
- ½ cup cold water
- 1 cup cold milk
- 1 package instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 carton frozen whipped topping, thawed
- Green food coloring
- Green sprinkles
Prepare and bake cake according to package directions, using three greased 6-inch heart shaped pans for the leaves and one 6-inch round pan for the stem (cut round cake to make stem). Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour.
In a small bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water; stir in cold water and set aside.
With a meat fork or wooden skewer, poke holes about 2 in. apart into the cooled cake. Slowly pour the gelatin over the cake. Cover and refrigerate.
In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Fold in whipped topping and add food coloring as desired. Spread over cake. Decorate with sprinkles. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
