This is the best cake. Light and not too sweet.

Orange Blossom Special Cake
INGREDIENTS

For the Cake:



  • 1 1/4 cup water 

  • 1 box yellow cake mix 

  • 2 cans of oranges, drained 

  • 1 can mandarin oranges, drained 

  • 4 eggs 

  • 1/3 cup butter 

  • 1/3 cup oil 

  • 1 big box vanilla instant pudding 

  • 1 can mandarin oranges, drained


For the Frosting: 



  • big tub cool whip 

  • 1 large can crushed pineapple, drained

  • 1 small box vanilla instant pudding 

  • 1 can mandarin oranges, drained 

  • sour cream

Instructions

For the Cake: 



  1. Mix all the ingredients together except for the oranges. Add the drained mandarin oranges and mix with a spoon, taking care to not break the orange slices. Bake according to instructions for cake mix. I use 2 round cake pans to make a double layer cake. 


For the Frosting: 



  1. In large bowl, mix together the cool whip, instant vanilla pudding and pineapple. Add additional sour cream until you reach the thickness desired. 

  2. Once the cake is cool, add a thick layer of frosting to the cake. Decorate the top of the cake with the mandarin oranges.
