    I made this cake without altering any ingredients and it turned out great! Just like the photo. I did use 2 - 8 inch round pans. I would only suggest using 'regular' cool whip and not the 'lite' cool whip because the regular cool whip sets up better. And for the frosting - cool the jello, white choc., milk & juice from the lemon mixture for 20 minutes (no less) and then 'gently' fold in the cool whip after that time.

    I made this according to the recipe, only I put it into 3-8 inch pans so I would not have to split layers. I decorated it with some marshmellow daisies and served it to my Red Hat members. It was a huge hit! Thank You for so many good recipes!
