I have made this cake twice now, once as written and once with white cake mix as others suggested. Both times it was Super Fantastic! My husband could not get enough, my grandkids scarfed it down like water, saying it tasted like ice cream. I put the manderin oranges on top and with the white cake, saved the syrup from the oranges and used it in place of water in the cake. I did add extra orange extract for my personal taste, but can't really find anything to fault in this. It is fast becoming a family favorite I'll take to church and family functions for years.Update, I learned 1 thing, put the jello over it slooowly so it will have more of a chance to soak in rather than most going around the edges to the bottom of the cake, which is still good anyway! Also, I did this from memory last night and forgot the vanilla extract, but no one could tell the difference. I just can not tell how good this is, my husand and grandkids would eat this every day and beg me to make it constantly. It tastes great with the orange and the white cake mixes. I like to switch up on them.
I FOUND THAT 1/2 TABLSPOON ORANGE EXTRACT IS PERFECT INSTEAD OF A WHOLE 1.
