    This was one of the best cakes I have ever had!! The one thing I noticed though was the cooking time....I had to cook it an additional 20 minutes. - 12/19/08

    Fantastic - would never know it was lowfat. The topping would be good to spilt and use only halp on the cake and save to make for another time as a pudding or topping for angel food cake. - 2/5/08

    Very good! Delicious flavor, easy to make. Next time I would only use about 8oz of whipped topping as I had quite a bit leftover with the 12oz container. Highly recommended! - 3/18/07

    This sounds incredible. Will make it, but split the cake between 2 8" pans and freeze half so that it doesn't go to waste. - 7/13/09

    I made this cake, but with a box of angel food cake instead of the yellow cake. Unfortunately, I also added the 4 egg whites/applesauce, which is something I wouldn't recommend -- it makes the cake fall & it gets really heavy/dense. All in all, it was absolutely delicious! My whole fam loved it! - 6/26/08

    Excellent cake! I made it yesterday and it was delicious. I did find that I had to cook it much longer than 15 minutes for it to be done though. YUMMY! - 10/8/07

    BONNYR...Look for fat free topping in the freezer case. Cool Whip is the most well known brand and there is usually a store brand as well.

    This was wonderful! I used ff/sf pudding, and Dream Whip instead of Cool Whip -- less transfats, I believe. Guests loved it, too! - 7/13/09

    Made this cake for a dinner party and it was a big hit. I omitted the frosting and only used Cool Whip Free as a topping. Brings the calories down with 16 servings. Bigger slice for everyone. Will keep in my recipe collection. - 3/26/12

    This is the same recipe I've made for years, but mine was the full fat version. I'm thrilled to find it's low-fat twin. The baking time is normally 30-35 minutes, based on your oven. And, 8 oz. of topping is plenty for a 9 x 13 pan. I used 12 oz. to frost an 8" 2-layer cake. - 10/16/11

    I made this for my husband's birthday. It was delicious! I made the mistake of getting the wrong sized container of fat free whipped topping, so the icing was a little running, but it still tasted GREAT! - 8/29/10
