Let's Make It
1
To Make Jam:

2
Wearing rubber gloves, cut a 1/2-inch slice off both ends of each pear and carefully peel off rind and discard. Chop prickly pear and place in food processor and blend until smooth. Strain, extracting as much puree and liquid by pushing down pulp with a rubber spatula.
3
Place 1 cup prickly pear puree plus sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat, for 10 minutes, stirring frequently until purée is reduced 1/2 cup. Remove from heat, transfer to a bowl and cool completely. Once cool stir in lime and orange juice.
4
To Make Cake:

5
Heat oven to 350ºF.
6
Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 2 (9-inch) round pans. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 min. Loosen cakes from sides of pans. Invert onto racks; gently remove pans. Cool cakes completely.
7
Beat pudding mix and milk in large bowl with whisk 2 min. (Pudding will be thick.) Gently stir in whipped topping.
8
Place 1 cake layer on plate; spread with jam. Top with layers of half each of the pudding mixture and prickly pears; cover with remaining cake layer. Top with remaining pudding mixture.
9
Refrigerate 1 hour. Top with chocolate shavings and prickly pear slices just before serving.
