  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 2 (8-inch) round cakes, substituting square pans for the round pans if desired. Cool cakes in pans 10 min. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, cook nuts and 3 Tbsp. sugar in nonstick skillet on medium-high heat 5 min. or until sugar is completely dissolved and nuts are evenly coated with sugar glaze, stirring constantly. Spread onto baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray; cool completely.
  • Cut apricots in half; discard pits. Cut fruit into thin slices. Reserve a few apricot slices for garnish. Beat cream cheese in medium bowl with mixer until creamy. Add remaining sugar; mix well. Gently stir in Cool Whip, then remaining sliced apricots.
  • Cut each cake layer horizontally in half with serrated knife; stack on serving plate, spreading 3/4 cup Cool Whip mixture between each layer.
  • Microwave jam in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 20 sec. or until heated through; stir. Drizzle over cake; spread to completely cover top of cake, allowing excess jam to drizzle down side.
  • Top cake with remaining Cool Whip mixture. Garnish with reserved apricot slices. Break candied nuts into small pieces; sprinkle over cake.
