Step 1

Prepare the cake according to the package instructions and bake them in 2 greased 9-inch or 8-inch cake pans. While waiting for the cakes to bake, prepare the pudding according to the package instructions, then put it inside the fridge, and allow it to cool until set. Once the cake is done baking, cut half of it or one of the cakes into cubes, then place them on the bottom of a punch bowl, and spread half of the pudding on top spreading it nice and even.
