Ingredients

  • ½ cup cream cheese
  • ¼ cup whole berry cranberry sauce
  • ½ cup frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 tubs Creamy Home-Style Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 1 package Classic Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • ⅓ cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. red food coloring
  • non-stick cooking spray

Baking Instructions

  1. In a medium size bowl, blend together cream cheese and cranberry sauce. Gently fold whipped topping into cream cheese mixture. Chill until ready to assemble cake.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease the sides and bottom of three 8" baking pans with no-stick cooking spray. Flour lightly.
  3. Blend dry mix, cranberry juice, orange juice concentrate, vegetable oil, eggs and food coloring in large bowl at low speed until moistened (about 30 seconds). Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour ⅓ of the batter in each pan. Bake immediately.
  4. Bake 20-23 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 15 minutes. Cool completely before assembling.
  5. Place one layer on serving platter. Spread with half the cream cheese mixture. Top with second layer and remaining cream cheese mixture. Top with remaining layer. Frost top and sides of cake with frosting. Garnish with fresh cranberries, orange twists and orange zest curls, if desired. Refrigerate cake until ready to serve.

Tips

Large cakes to bake evenly

Large cakes to bake evenly

When I make large cakes, such as half-sheet cakes, I put a small metal cup in the middle of the batter. Having the metal heat also from the middle helps the cake bake more even AND the cake bakes quicker without drying out the sides! Let me know if this works for you!

Instead of using milk in wedding cake icing recipe, use water. If the cake is going to be sitting out for a certain period of time, your milk can sour. Much safer using water.
