This is a good basic "I'm in a hurry, need a dessert" type of recipe. It has nice texture and the taste is good. When I made this exactly as the recipe stated I felt the cake was something I would be pleased to share with guests but nothing memorable. I then made the cake, trying for a richer, less artificial taste. I drained the oranges and replaced that cup of liquid with orange juice, used a duncan hines orange cake mix, used 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup melted butter and mixed in a 1/2 cup of sour cream. For the topping, I mixed the pineapple with the pudding mix and set aside. Creamed 8 oz. of cream cheese with 1/2 cup of sugar until smooth, added 1 cup of heavy whipping cream and beat until stiff peaks formed. Folded the pudding and cream cheese mixture together and frosted the cake. I was much happier with the flavor, texture and even the presentation of the cake. Thanks for a good basic recipe that I could be creative with.
