I just made this cake and with a few adjustments it was perfect. It really tastes like a cream sickle you just got off the ice cream truck. The things changed are: I doubled the amount of extract in both the cake and icing (add to taste), I also added non-flavored gelatin (1 - 2 pkgs) in the icing (icing is a little thin), added food coloring to the icing to make it the color of the orange of a cream sickle and I used a white cake mix. It was perfect!! The icing is a little thin, even after setting, without the gelatin. I love the icing because it is not a real sweet icing. My daughter and I usually share a piece of cake, I eat the cake and she eats the icing. There will be NO SHARING TODAY. lol For an added twist I made a coconut cream version of this as well by: where ever it says water/milk I used coconut milk (canned of course, I'll try fresh next time, lol) and I used coconut extract (still doubling of course), as well as the gelatin, top with coconut and this is a coconut cake to die for!!!
