1Prepare cake according to package directions and bake in two 8-inch cake pans. Cool and slice each layer horizontally to make four layers total.

2Combine sugar and sliced almonds in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat and stir for 3 to 4 minutes, until sugar melts and glazes almonds. Immediately spread glazed almonds on a sheet of foil and cool. Break glazed almonds apart when cool.

3Place the mascarpone cheese in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer on high speed, beat the cheese until light and fluffy (about 1 minute). Add vanilla and sugar, then beat on medium speed for 1 more minute. With a spatula or large spoon, fold thawed dessert topping into the whipped mascarpone cheese mixture.

4Place one layer of the cake on a platter and spoon 1 cup of the whipped mixture over it. Sprinkle with ¼ cup of glazed almonds. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the cajeta over the almonds and add another cake layer. Repeat, ending with whipped mixture, glazed almonds, and cajeta.
