This cake is inspired by the novelty ice cream bar, the Orange Creamsicle. It's refreshingly rich, citrusey, and perfect for a summer evening (or anytime) treat.. I adapted this recipe from one I found at http://www.northpole.com/Kitchen/Cookbook/rec0681.html.

Directions

  1. Prepare cake batter according to box directions, then add 1 box of pudding mix to the batter, blend in being careful not to over mix the batter.
  2. Bake according to directions in a 9"X13" baking pan or equivalent. (You can even use a bundt pan--just follow baking directions on the cake mix box.).
  3. When cake is done do not turn it out of the pan. Poke holes in cake with an ice pick or large bamboo skewer.
  4. Prepare the orange Jell-O gelatin using 1 cup of boiling water, mix until dissolved, add 3/4 cup of cold water and the orange zest, then ladle the warm Jell-O gelatin over cake.
  5. Put cake in refrigerator over night or for 6 to 8 hours.
  6. Then take cake out and set pan in hot water for a moment, turn upside down on cake board. For the icing, put cool whip in a bowl, add the other 2 boxes of pudding mix and 2 cups of milk, mix well and put on cake.
  7. Garnish with mandarin orange slices or a few sprinkles of orange zest.
