1 (18.25 ounce) package
orange cake mix
1 (3 ounce) package
orange flavored Jell-O® mix
1 (8 ounce) container
frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (3.5 ounce) package
instant vanilla pudding mix
Try use white cake mix with pudding instead of orange cake mix. It tastes like a creamsicle.For presentation I placed manderin oranges on each slice. My family & friends love it. We call it creamsicle cake. This is so Refreshing!
No real advantage over the plain orange cake
I made this for my husband's birthday.
I couldn't find orange cake mix, so
I used yellow. After I dissolved the
jello in the hot water, I used cold
orange soda in place of the cold water.
I left the "frosting" just as is, with
the whipped topping, milk and instant
vanilla pudding. I wanted it to be
more like a Dreamsicle, instead of all orange.
I studded the top with mandarin oranges.
It was a hit. And just like I remember
Dreamsicles. Very good, light summer
dessert. I plan on making this for
future BBQ get-togethers.
Bought some orange cake mix just because it looked interesting and I found this recipe. Made if for Mother's Day, and then I had to make it for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, and now Easter. The only thing I've changed from the recipe is to add mandarin orange segments for looks and to cut down a little on the sweetness. Orange cake mix is so hard to find that I bought several boxes and am freezing them.
*** Addendum: Ooops, We DID use WHITE Cake mix instead of Orange!
We made this cake yesterday (over the July 4th holiday weekend) and it was FABULOUS!! We had a large family gathering and this cake was loved by all! I wanted to make something that my young daughter could help to prepare and feel proud of. It turns out this was a great choice. The recipe was very easy. We used Sugar Free Orange Jello and Sugar Free Vanilla Pudding (You couldn't tell ANY difference in the taste), and regular Cool Whip. The cake was very light, cool and not too sweet.... Overall, it came out perfect and was extremely delicious! I'll definitely be making this again!
This recipe is excellent! I used fat free coolwhip and sugar free jello and pudding to cut out some of the sugar. I also added extra jello to the whipped topping to give it more color and flavor.
Also, I tried this recipe out using strawberry cake & jello, and it was excellent! Lemon was okay, and I am trying pineapple soon!
This sounds like the recipe I've made years ago and I've been looking for it for quite some time. I make it a little different though. I use a packaged sponge cake, cut it up into bite size pieces, place in a 13 x 9 glass or plastic pan, mix orange jello with 1 cup hot water and 1 cup orange juice, while that chills for about 20 minutes, mix 1 container of regular or low fat cool whip and 1 container of no fat/low fat orange or peach yogurt, mix the jello into the cool whip/yogurt and pour it over the pieces of sponge cake, place back in fridge and let set for about 4 hours or over night. This is a nice light dessert for the summer and if you use sugar free ingredients diabetes can enjoy it too!
Used a white cake mix w/pudding in it-what I had on hand. Had regular pudding mix, so made that & let it cool,& mixed in a cup of sour cream flavored w/Watkin's Mandarin Orange Fruit Dip mix & covered the cake w/that. Everyone liked it, but want to make it w/the original recipe also as some of the people would like it even sweeter. Used a spoon handle to poke the holes & the color was very pretty. Thanks for the recipe.
