Orange Dreamsicle Cake Recipe

Orange Dreamsicle Cake is a delicious summer dessert that is sure to be enjoyed by everyone in your family. Sorry I forgot to upload the photo before leaving for vacation!


1 box white cake mix
1 small box of orange Jello
1 cup boiling water
1 small box of instant vanilla pudding
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon orange extract
1 8 oz. container of Cool Whip

Be sure to set out the Cool Whip to thaw before beginning. Prepare cake mix as directed on box for 9x13 pan. Once the cake is finished baking, remove it from the oven. Poke holes throughout the cake with a fork. Mix orange jello with 1 cup of boiling water and pour over the cake. Place cake in refrigerator to cool for approximately 30 minutes. Mix together (with hand mixer or otherwise) instant vanilla pudding and 1 cup of milk. Stir in orange and vanilla extracts. Fold in Cool Whip and spread over cake and chill for one hour before serving. Enjoy!

we do this with lemon - oh my goodness, it is GOOD! Light and just a little bit tangy. It feels fresh and clean after a heavy meal, so I'll often make it for Christmas or Thanksgiving dessert. It balances out the chocolates and pumpkin pies, LOL!
