Give it a try and please let me know how you guys like it.. My family and friends, couldn't be more happier, and excited over this new fresh treat..

Place Cake in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Cool thoroughly.
Once your cake has cooled completely, Cut it through the middle carefully.
Now pour half of the sweetened juice from the cocktail onto the bottom layer so the cake can suck up all the juice.
Add half of your fresh Creme, top with half of the fruit cocktail, and gently place the second layer on top.
On the top layer, using the back of a pen or a chopstick poke little holes, and pour the other half of the cocktail juice on the top..
Once it has absorbed the juice add your fresh cream, and the rest of your cocktail.
Refrigerate and chill for about 1 hour.. and Enjoy with your loved ones!
The cake would look mind blowing in a Pyrex glass dish, but Ive had a nightmare before when it broke into pieces all over my kitchen counter, when I was taking my lasagna out of the oven, so I don't use those anymore... for now at least!!
