Like the other reviews, I didn't know what to do with the "2 cups water" so I just ignored it as it didn't make sense to use it anywhere in the recipe. Cake turned out great so maybe this needs to be edited to remove that ingredient from the list.

Would really like to know what to do with the second amount of water....before I attempt this recipe! Is it a typo or do we add the milk AND water etc.....to the pudding and jello (dry)?

This recipe sounds so good. Really looking forward to making it. I noticed as one on the other guest did that there are no instructions shown concerning the 2nd 2cups of water listed with the ingredients for the icing. Would someone who has used the recipe be so kind as to advise....should the 2nd "2cups of water" be ignored?

Won me a lot of points with my boyfriends parents. I changed everything to sugar free And it was still amazing. I want to experiment with other flavors now.

COMMENT:
I have not had a response to this question. The recipe has 2 amounts of water. The first one is 2 cups water(1 hot and 1 cold to dissolve the jell-o. Why is there a second amount of 2 cups water? Is there a direction missing as to how to use it or is that a misprint. Please help. I loved the cake but I did not use the second 2 cups of water anywhere.

What size pudding box, what size jello box...HELLO! They come in two sizes.

CDKitchen Note: If a recipe doesn't specify a can or box size always use the standard size (which is usually the most common size and often comes with the most varieties). In this case the standard size is the smaller size.

I made this last night and it was great!! I used sugar free Pillsbury cake, sugar free jello and pudding mix, I used diet soda, skim milk and sugar free cool whip. Even with all the changes it still tasted great! Low sugar option great for diabetic.
