St. Patrick's Day Wearing O'Green Cake
St. Patrick's Day is fast approaching and all things green come to mind.  If you are looking for a delightful dessert for your St. Paddy's Day celebration, give this one a try.  The lime gelatin adds a touch of green and a zesty tang to the cake and the vanilla pudding and whipped topping make a great creamy frosting.

In our family we always celebrate St. Patrick's Day with the customary corned beef, cabbage, red potatoes, etc.  While we enjoy the meal, we also listen to traditional Irish music.  It has always been a fun meal.  This cake will make a great conclusion to a festive meal.



  • 1 package white cake mix (regular size)
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) lime gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Green sprinkles


  1. Prepare and bake cake according to package directions, using a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Cool on a wire rack 1 hour. In a small bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water; stir in cold water and set aside.
  2. With a meat fork or wooden skewer, poke holes about 2 in. apart into cooled cake. Slowly pour gelatin over cake. Cover and refrigerate. 
  3. In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix 2 minutes (mixture will be thick). Fold in whipped topping. Spread over cake. Decorate with sprinkles. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Yield: 12-15 servings.
