Orange Creamsicle Dessert Cake Recipe

When our daughter was younger...this was her favorite cake that I would make for her. It's really easy to make and only takes a few ingredients. Once your cake has cooled, you will want to frost it with your favorite frosting recipe or use the one provided below.

Orange Creamsicle Cake Recipe

1 box of orange flavored cake mix
1 (3 ounce) box orange flavored gelatin mix

Bake the cake as directed on the box. Let it cool for 1 hour. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the gelatin powder with 1 cup of boiling water until it has dissolved, then stir in 1/2 cup of cold water.

Poke holes in the top of your cooled cake with a large fork. Pour gelatin mixture across the top and then refrigerate for 2 hours.

Frosting Ingredients:

1 small box vanilla instant pudding mix
1 cup cold milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (8 ounce) tub Cool Whip

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the first 3 ingredients together and beat with an electric hand mixer until it thickens. Fold in a thawed container of Cool Whip until all of the ingredients are combined. Spread frosting across the top of your cake.
