dreamsicles

So far this pregnancy I can't seem to get enough of orange flavored stuff. I've been eating lots of oranges, orange sherbet, could easily have a sunkist a day (don't worry sunkist has way little caffeine in it, way under the amount I'm allowed to have daily, so don't get your panties in a wad over that one. and honestly I don't drink soda every day, only like once a week as a treat). I can't get enough of sour patch kids, especially the orange ones. I dream about orange dreamsicles. So I got to thinking, what would be more perfect then an orange dreamsicle cake! heck yeah cake! I went searching and found a couple of awesome recipes. I think I'm going to try this one first.

Ingredients
3/4 cup Miracle Whip
18 1/2 ounces yellow cake mix
1 1/3 ounces Dream Whip topping mix (1 packet of Dream Whip)
3/4 cup orange juice
3 eggs
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon multicolored candy sprinkles
Directions
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2Beat salad dressing, cake mix, whipped topping mix, juice, eggs and grated orange peel at medium speed with electric mixer for 2 minutes. Pour into greased and floured 10-inch bundt pan.

3Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes; remove from pan. Cool.

4Stir together powdered sugar and mil until smooth. Drizzle over cake, Decorate with sprinkles.

I think I'm going to try it this weekend. Although I'm not a fan that it starts from a box, I'll give it a chance. I'm still going to be on the search for a good moist dreamsicle cake completely from scratch. I do have some good yellow cake recipes from scratch so I'm sure I could work something out if I can't find something else.

Anyway I hope it's good cause my tongue needs to recover from all the orange sherbet I've been eating...I've frozen my tastebuds haha.

Were you ever able to come up with a scratch creamsicle cake? I would love to know the recipe. They are my favourite popsicle and I'm not a fan of all the stuff in the box mixes. I've tried myself and can't quite get it right.
