Preheat oven and prepare cake mix according to package directions. Divide cake batter in half and pour into two bowls. Add 8 drops of green food coloring to one bowl and mix thoroughly. Pour cake batter into two 8 inch round cake pans. Bake according to package.

When cakes finish baking, allow to cool completely. Cut into inch pieces.
Using a pretty serving bowl, layer cake pieces, add a layer of yellow pudding, and top with whipped cream. Repeat this process until you have used up the cake pieces. Finish with a layer of whipped cream on top. Drizzle the green pudding over the whipped topping and sprinkle with the candies and mints.
