This was extremely easy to make, and my family really enjoyed it. It's a good light dessert that's not too sweet, and the little bit I had left was even better as the cake improves upon standing overnight in the refrigerator. I added 1/2 cup flaked coconut to the icing, and the next time that I make it, I will also try adding a 1/2 tsp orange flavoring to the cake mix and mandarin oranges to strengthen the flavor a bit.
