I was excited to find this recipe as my Aunt used to make a version of this when I was a child. However, upon making it I've found that I had to improvise a bit to get it the way I had hoped it would be. I used a vanilla cake mix as suggested by other reviewers & agree that the presentation of the jello stripes looked very nice! As for the topping, I wish I had omitted the jello packet, or maybe just used half of it, because it was way too overpowering, sweet, & artificial. I ended up mixing an extra box of pudding, an extra envelope of dream whip (which I had already substituted one envelope for the whipped topping) & when it was still too sweet, I mixed in an 8 oz block of cream cheese which seemed to do the trick in making it "dreamsicle" like. It went over well and I would make it again but next time I would go easy on the jello in the topping or omit it all together and add some orange extract.
