Prepare cake batter as directed on package, adding dry pudding mix to dry cake mix before beating with liquid ingredients. Stir in 3 Tbsp. sprinkles. Pour into 2 greased and floured 9-inch round pans.
Bake 25 min. or until toothpick inserted in centres comes out clean. Cool 10 min. Remove cakes from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
Trim tops of cakes to make them level. Place trimmed cake pieces in bowl; tear into small crumbs.
Whisk sour cream and sugar in large bowl until blended. Stir in Cool Whip. Add 1/4 cup Cool Whip mixture to cake trimmings in bowl; mix well. Reserve for later use.
Cut each trimmed cake layer horizontally in half to make 2 thin layers. Place 1 cake layer on plate; spread with 1/2 cup of the remaining Cool Whip mixture. Repeat layers 3 times. Spread sides and top of cake with remaining Cool Whip mixture.
Roll reserved cake crumb mixture into 16 balls, using about 1 tsp. crumb mixture for each ball. Coat balls evenly with remaining sprinkles. Use to decorate cake as shown in photo.
