Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size-Wise
Celebrate and enjoy a serving of this indulgent cake on a special occasion.
How to Slice and Stack Cake Layers
Place one of the cooled cake layers on a serving plate. Make a 2-inch horizontal cut around side of cake using a long serrated knife. Then, cut all of the way through cake layer to make two layers. Remove top layer by sliding it onto 9-inch round cardboard circle. Cover cake layer on plate with 1/4 each of the COOL WHIP mixture and nuts, then slide the top half of the split cake layer from the cardboard circle onto the frosted layer on plate. Repeat with remaining cake layers.
