One package of yellow cake mixes (along with the ingredients
mentioned in the box).

2 packages of instant vanilla pudding mix.

4 cups of milk.

One container of chocolate frosting.


step 1

First, prepare the cake in a 13 x 9″ pan following the instructions on the box. Once the cake is baked and cooled, take a spoon handle and evenly poke holes all over the cake.

Step 2

Whisk the milk and pudding mix together until they are thoroughly combined.

Step 3

Carefully pour the pudding mixture over the cake, ensuring that it seeps down into the holes you previously created.

Step 4

Place the cake in the refrigerator for several hours to allow the pudding to settle and set up. This will help the cake achieve a firmer and more cohesive texture.

Step 5

After that, open the frosting container by removing the foil seal from the top.

Step 6

Then, microwave the frosting for 15 seconds, then give it a good stir to ensure it is well-mixed and smooth.

Step 7

Next, repeat the process of microwaving the frosting for 15 seconds and stirring it thoroughly. Continue this cycle until the frosting reaches a pourable consistency.

Step 8

Finally, pour the pourable frosting over the pudding layer, spread it with a spatula to cover the cake completely, and refrigerate for several more hours.


– Be gentle when poking the holes in the cake to avoid tearing or crumbling.

– Allow the cake to chill for several hours to ensure the pudding sets properly.

– Heat the chocolate frosting in short intervals, stirring in between, for a smooth and pourable consistency.


– Chocolate Lovers: Use a chocolate cake mix instead of yellow and layer chocolate pudding between the cake and frosting.

– Raspberry Twist: Add a layer of raspberry jam or fresh raspberries between the cake and pudding for a fruity burst.

– Caramel Delight: Drizzle caramel sauce over the pudding layer before adding the chocolate frosting for a sweet and gooey treat.

– Cookies and Cream: Crush some chocolate sandwich cookies and sprinkle them over the pudding layer for added texture and flavor.
