Joan, Michael and I spent a few days visiting Brian and Heather in Essex County. Today we went shopping at the annual town-wide garage sale. At a downtown church Joan and Heather each purchased a punch bowl. Now both the girls will be able to make this fabulous dessert with the right presentation.
Punch Bowl Cake
The whipped topping surmounts the delightful mess!
1 Duncan Hines yellow cake mix
2 small instant vanilla puddings
1 package shredded coconut
20-ounce can cherry pie filling
20-ounce can crushed pineapple, undrained
20-ounce can fruit cocktail, undrained
1 large size whipped topping
Make the cake according to the directions given on the box. Make the instant pudding according to the directions on the box. Crumble half of the cake into the bottom of a large punch bowl. Press cake down smooth. Place half of the pudding on top of crumbled cake.
Smooth on half of each of the remaining ingredients, repeat and add the cherry pie filling last.
