Orange Creamsicle Cake



Welcome to Thursday is Dessert Day..... With Easter just around the corner I wanted to make a cake that to me just SCREAMED Easter and Spring. I was walking through the store a few weeks ago and I noticed an Orange Supreme cake mix on the shelf, OMG, all of the sudden ideas started flooding into my head of what I could do with this simple and basic cake mix to give it a new identity. As the ideas came in I went from isle to isle gathering ingredients to create the cake I had just came up with while walking in the store. Let me just say some of the best thing just happen as you are walking through the grocery store!





1- 18.25oz. Box
- Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Orange Supreme Cake
1 1/3 C. - Water
1/3 C. - Oil
3 - Large Eggs
5 - Drops Red Food Coloring
5 - Drops Yellow Food Coloring
1 Tsp. - Orange extract
1 C. - Vanilla Chips
1 Tsp. - Pure Vanilla
1 - 12oz. - Betty Crocker Whipped Fluffy White Frosting
3 - 14oz. - Cans Mandarin Oranges (drained)


In a mixing bowl add the 7 ingredients and mix well to combine, when fully mixed and smooth stir in the chips and transfer to a 13x9 baking dish. Bake according to directions and let cool completely. While the cake is cooling pat dry the oranges using paper towels and mix the vanilla into the frosting. When the cake is completely cooled, frost, and cover the top with the oranges.

You've captured all the wonderful creamsicle flavors in a beautiful cake. I loved those ice cream bars when I was a child.
