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.


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
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.
