I made some substitutions for my cake which worked great. I used a white cake mix, adding whole eggs. For the pudding mixture, I used 1 vanilla and 1 cocoanut pudding mix. 1 1/2 cups milk, 1 1/4 cups water, 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice, 3 tsps. lemon zest, and 12 cup sugar. It turned out just like the picture, and my husband loves it.
