Dreamy Orange Cake

Alice Gless Recipe shared by:
| Follow this Baker

Orange sheet cake with a Creamy Orange Curd Topping with Whipped Cream folded in, served with some whipped cream sprinkled with a little orange zest. Quite honestly, the orange cake is a little strong for me, but I wanted to see what I could do with it.

  • Hands-On Time: 30 Minutes
  • Total Time: 3 Hours
  • Servings: 18 generous
  • Rating:


  • 1 box Duncan Hines Orange Supreme Cake Mix
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1-1/3 cups water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

Baking Instructions

  1. I didn't but strongly suggest making the cake exactly according to the instructions on the box.
  2. I made it exactly like my Rhubarb Custard Cake minus the vanilla and before I added the rhubarb and cream.
  3. The crumb of mine is fine and top was silky smooth.
  4. But it is a little dry and got too high to cover easily because of using custard powder (I think).
  5. The cake will have a coarser crumb and will be more moist by following the instructions.
  6. Bake according to instructions, set out to cool.
  7. You can start the frosting while the cake is cooling.
  8. Pictured is Creamy Orange Pudding Topping which you will find in the frosting section.
  9. You could also use orange buttercream like I made for my orange chocolate brownie bars.
  10. You can frost or not however you like; chocolate incorporated in some way might enhance it.

Too Many Steps To Make Perfect Size Frosting

Too Many Steps To Make Perfect Size Frosting

Hi, I've made two of the Perfect Cakes that include icing. Very simple except why not just include ready made icing instead of taking extra steps to mix? I just pitch your frosting and use a ready made icing. Hate to waste it but. . .

Use Cream in Buttercream Frosting

Use Cream in Buttercream Frosting

When making homemade buttercream frosting, heavy whipping cream gives the best consistency. Half & half also works well. Skim milk or 1% or 2% sometimes produces frosting that has little holes and looks porous. It is less creamy in consistency.
