    I have made this recipe posted by candykisses for her White Texas Sheet Cake many times. It taste wonderful, you can make it ahead of time (keeps well) no refrigeration needed. Makes a good amount too. You could make a few of them in disposable aluminum pans. Looks like you have your work cut out for you..Good Luck...

    Lemon Fluff

    2 cans (13 oz each) evaporated milk
    1 package (6 oz) lemon gelatin
    2 cups boiling water
    1 cups cold water
    4 tsp grated lemon rind (2 lemons)
    1 cup lemon juice
    2 cup vanilla wafer crumbs (28 wafers)
    1 cup sugar
    1 oz (1 square) semisweet chocolate, coarsely grated (optional)
    2 cups heavy cream, whipped (optional)
    Pour evaporated milk into 2 metal loaf pans, 9 x 5", and freeze until
    crystals form, about 2 hours. Chill the large bowl of a heavy duty mixer
    and the beaters in refrigerator.
    Meanwhile, dissolve gelatin in boiling water; stir in cold water, lemon rind,
    and juice. Cool at room temperature until as thick as unbeaten egg white.
    Sprinkle half of the wafer crumbs into 2 glass pans, 13 x 9 x 2". You can
    substitute graham wafer crumbs, or even use whole wafers fitting
    to cover the bottom surface of the pans.
    In a chilled bowl, whip partially frozen evaporated milk until stiff.
    Gradually beat in sugar, then the gelatin mixture until well blended.
    Turn into prepared dishes. Sprinkle remaining wafer crumbs over tops.
    Sprinkle with chocolate. Chill until firm, several hours over night. Cut
    into rectangles or squares and serve with whipped cream. Makes 36
    Make Ahead: Lemon fluff is excellent prepared the day before.
    After it is set, cover closely with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. The
    dessert can be held in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days if well covered.

    Dump Cake would be very easy. Of course you would need 12-15 of them lol. Just use the disposable foil pans.

    Dump Cake

    1 can cherry pie filling
    1- 20 oz can crushed pineapple drain off about 1/2 of the juice
    1 white or yellow cake mix
    1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
    1/2 cup nuts, chopped

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Dump and spread out pie filling in a 9 inch x 12 inch baking dish, pour and carefully spread the pineapple (along with the remaining juice) over the pie filling. Evenly spread the DRY cake mix over the pineapple. Drizzle the melted butter over the cake mix, then sprinkle the nuts over the top. Bake for about 30 minutes or until it just starts to turn golden brown on top.

    Serves 12
