Luscious Lemon Poke Cake

This recipe was made, because Jake saw it on my Kraft calender and said it looked SO good, It must have looked pretty tastey to him because he called me on National Scrapbook day to tell me just that. So of course I aim to please and the cake was made.. It is indead as yummy as it looked on the calender...

2 baked round white cake layers (9-inch), cooled
2 cups boiling water
1 pkg. (8-serving size) or 2 pkg. (4-serving size each) JELL-O Brand Lemon Flavor Gelatin
1 cup cold milk
1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Lemon Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling
3 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

PLACE cake layers, top-sides up, in two clean 9-inch round cake pans. Pierce cakes with large fork at 1/2-inch intervals.

STIR boiling water into dry gelatin mix in medium bowl at least 2 min. until completely dissolved. Carefully pour evenly over cake layers. Refrigerate 3 hours.

POUR milk into large bowl. Add dry pudding mix. Beat with whisk 2 min. or until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping; set aside. Dip one cake pan in warm water 10 sec.; unmold onto serving plate. Spread with about 1 cup of the pudding mixture. Unmold second cake layer; carefully place on first cake layer. Frost top and side of cake with remaining pudding mixture. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Store leftover cake in refrigerator.
