minutes; turn out onto cooling rack. Cool completely.

2. For filling, combine pudding mix and milk in bowl of electric mixer.
Beat on high speed until thickened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add whipped topping;
beat 2 minutes. Refrigerate until set, about 5 minutes.

3. For glaze, heat butter, cocoa and half-and-half to a boil in medium
saucepan over medium-high heat. Remove from heat; slowly stir in
confectioners’ sugar (if added too fast, glaze will be lumpy). Stir in
vanilla. Note: Glaze must be warm when ready to pour over cake.

4. Place 1 cake round upside down onto cake platter. Top with pudding
mixture; it will be a thick layer. Place second cake layer on filling.
Slowly pour warm glaze over the top; allow it to run down sides. Chill 2 to
4 hours before serving.
