Diva Sleepover Cake Recipe


  • 1 pkg. (2-layer size) white cake mix
  • 1 pkg. (4-serving size) vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 1-1/2 cups thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping
  • 6 giant ladyfingers (4x1-3/4 inch)
  • 2 chewy fruit rolls
  • Nilla Vanilla Wafers
  • 1/2 tsp. decorating gel
  • 1/4 cup flaked coconut
  • 3 drops food colouring
  • 1/4 cup jelly beans


  • Prepare  cake batter and bake in 13x9-inch pan as directed on package. Cool in pan 10 min. Carefully invert onto wire rack; cool completely. Meanwhile, beat pudding mix and milk in medium bowl with whisk 2 min. Stir in Cool Whip. Refrigerate 30 min. or until thickened.
  • Transfer  cake to cake board or tray. Arrange ladyfingers, side-by-side, down centre of cake to resemble 6 bodies laying next to each other in a bed. Spread pudding mixture onto top and sides of cake, completely covering cookies and cake. Attach fruit rolls to sides of cake to resemble a bed skirt.
  • Place  1 wafer at one end of each body for the head. Use decorating gel to draw the eyes, nose and mouth on each wafer. Tint coconut with food colouring; sprinkle at top of each wafer for the hair. Add jelly beans to top of cake to resemble a polka-dotted blanket. Keep refrigerated.

Fun IdeaLet the "divas" decorate this cake as one of the party activities. Ask each girl to decorate one of the Nilla Vanilla Wafers to match their own features before "tucking it into the bed."
