This combination of orange and vanilla will remind you of those dreamsicle/creamsicle ice cream bars that most of us will fondly remember. Great as a birthday cake for all ages! Recipe from Linda Larsen.
- 1 (18 ounce) package yellow cake mix
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1⁄4 cup oil
- 2 (3 ounce) packages orange gelatin, divided
- 3⁄4 cup boiling water
- 1 cup cold water
- 1 (3 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding (no cook type)
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream

- Prepare cake mix as directed on package, using eggs, orange juice and oil.
- Spray 13X9" with baking spray and add cake batter.
- Bake at 350°F for 30-40 minutes, until cake springs back when touched and starts to pull away from sides of pan.
- Cool cake completely on wire rack.
- Using a wooden chopstick, or something similar,poke small holes all over the cake, going right to the bottom of pan.

- Slowly pour this mixture over the cake, making sure that the mixture gets into all the holes.
- Cover and chill for 2-4 hours.
- In medium bowl, combine 1 box orange gelatin, the pudding mix, milk, and vanilla and beat well.
