Hi everyone! I have tasted a cheese cake that was made into a 2 layer cake. A friend of the lady that made it told her it was very simple but wouldn't divulge the recipe. She did hint that it had cool whip in it. I have seen many recipes for a cool whip/cream cheese pie where you use the graham cracker crust but like I said, I would like to create a 2 layer cake like she did. Does anyone have this recipe or know how I would adjust the pie recipe to make it stable enough to use as a layer cake. Thanks for any help you can give me!
Good luck on your quest.

Thanks JanH for the links and info!
I think I know what you mean..this had no actual cake in it right? (No baked goods)
While I have never used Cool Whip (ew) I have done layered no-bake cheesecakes and then iced them in whipped cream.
Essentially I make half my no-bake recipe with a little extra gelatin, and pour it into a springform pan, The once it has hardened a bit I pour in a filling (usually something that will set also) and allow it to set. The make the other half of the recipe and pout it on top. Allow to chill for 16-24 hours and then remove from the pan. Ice if desired with a whipped cream icing/creme fraiche etc.
I never do more than 2 layers unless the filling is something that sets very firmly.
Don't know if this is the sort of thing you are after, but if so, I imagine it could be done with the cool-whip recipe if you add some extra gelatin to it.
Good luck! Sounds cool and summery!
