I found this recipe online and to my disappointment, the cake was nothing like the cake that was in the picture so I decided to make this one up myself. This is my version.
Delicious cake and very quick and easy to make. It was a little gooey in the center – my sons favorite part.
ORANGE DREAMSICLE CAKE
- 1 Pkg Yellow Cake Mix
- 2 Pks Orange JELL-O1
- Pk Vanilla Instant Pudding
- 1 Cup 2% Milk
- 2 Tsp Vanilla
- 1 Tub Cool WhipDirections
Bake the cake as directed in a 9×13″ pan. Let cake cool completely. Poke holes in cooled cake. Mix 1 package orange gelatin dessert with 1 c. boiling water and 1 c. cold water. Pour over cake. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours. Mix pudding mix with cold milk the other package of orange gelatin dessert and vanilla. Beat by hand with a whisk until thickened. Fold in the whipped topping. Frost the cake with the pudding mixture. These instructions will make a single layered amazing cake that is delicous!PLEASE NOTE: To get the layered look as in this particular picture – make your cakes in well greased and floured pans – follow baking instructions. I then tip then out onto cooling rack and invert back onto a cookie sheet. Proceed to poke holes and do the jello thing and refrigerate (or put out on the cold enclosed back porch as we do). It is a little tricky to get the layers – but I love our pan lifters to help with this process. (most people use these to take pizza off their grills, but I use it a lot for cakes)!
For a layered Creamsicle Cake: Make the cake batter as directed, then batter pour evenly into 3 round 9? cake pans. Bake cakes as directed and let cool. Then, make the orange gelatin as directed on the package — but with this version, you’ll let the gelatin set up instead of pouring it into the cake. We recommend using your round cake pans, or using a 13×17? jelly roll pan (1? deep cookie sheet with edges). Once you pour the liquid gelatin mixture into the pans, it will need to be refrigerated for about 4 hours. Meanwhile, make the pudding mixture according to the original recipe. Finally, layer in this order: cake, gelatin pudding mixture. Repeat once more for a 6-layered Creamsicle Cake.
