Bake the cake as directed in a 9x13-inch pan. Let cake cool completely. Poke holes in cooled cake.
Mix 1 package orange gelatin dessert with 1 cup boiling water and 1 cup cold water. Pour over cake. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.
Mix pudding mix with cold milk the other package of orange gelatin dessert and vanilla. Beat by hand with a whisk until thickened. Fold in the whipped topping.
Frost the cake with the pudding mixture. These instructions will make a single layered amazing cake that is delicious!
To get the layered look as in this particular picture make your cakes in well greased and floured pans-follow baking instructions. I then tip then out onto cooling rack and invert back onto a cookie sheet. Proceed to poke holes and do the jello thing and refrigerate (or put out on the cold enclosed back porch as we do). It is a little tricky to get the layers, but I love our pan lifters to help with this process.
