Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. Duncan Hines Yellow cake mix
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple with juice
  • 2 (8 ounce) cans mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 (3.5 ounce) pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

Baking Instructions

  1. Mix and bake cake mix as per package instruction for two 8 or 9-inch round layers. Let layers cool then split each layer in half so as to have 4 layers.
  2. Whip cream cheese until soft, add the confectioners' sugar and thoroughly mix. Stir in the pineapple (juice also) and the drained mandarin oranges (Reserve about 5 mandarin orange slices to decorate the top of cake.), breaking up the oranges with back of a spoon. Stir in the dry pudding mix.
  3. Mix well until you feel the pudding mix has been dissolved. Fold in the whipped topping. Place one cake layer on a cake plate cut side up; spread with frosting. Place another layer cut side down on the first one. Again spread with frosting.
  4. Repeat until all layers are used spreading last bit of frosting on top and sides of cake.
  5. Keep refrigerated. It is best if refrigerated overnight before serving.

Tips

Baking with Soy Milk

Baking with Soy Milk

Whether you are lactose intolerant, a vegan or just don't like milk (me); you can use soy milk for most mixes that call for milk. I have been successful with muffin mixes (Duncan Hines) and pancake mixes using soy milk. Just use the same amount of soy milk as what the recipe calls for in milk. Great taste!


Frosting Catastrophe

Frosting Catastrophe

Never hand-mix frosting! When i first made homemade frosting it came out brownish, lumpy and i ended up having to throw it out! Don't make the same dumb mistake i made!
