    I totally changed the recipe to make it a little more Christmas. I used spice cake instead of chocolate and used vanilla pudding mix. I also decreased the cool whip to 1 cup and added about 1 cup of canned pumpkin. It made a bit of extra icing but I just put the extra on and in the cake, it was good, not-too-sweet icing and the pumpkin and cream cheese complimented the spice cake. I will defiantly make this again, I had so many complements and my family still talks about it 2 years later. Thanks for the inspiration. Donna
