Directions See How It's Made
- 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.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the sides & bottom of 3 8" baking pans with shortening. Flour them lightly.
- Blend dry cake mix, cranberry juice, orange juice concentrate, oil, egg whites and food coloring in large bowl at low speed until moistened (about 30 seconds). Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour 1/3 of the batter in each cake pan and bake immediately.
- Bake 20-23 minutes or until done. Cool in pan on a wire rack until completely cooled.
- Place one layer on a serving platter. Spread only the top with half the cream cheese mixture. Top with second layer of cake and remaining cream cheese mixture on only the top. Add remaining cake layer and 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.
