Dreamsicle/Creamsicle Cake

Dreamsicle/Creamsicle Cake created by Zipadedoda

This is a great moist cake with a delicious orange taste. it's another one I got from the local paper. Made a great hit at Christmas. Sorry about the problems some had. I hadn't made this for awhile & didn't remember any problems. I made it again & the solution is do not thaw the cool whip. I used almost 12 oz. & just cut it into the other ingredients. It stayed together enough to frost & get in the fridge. I will change the amount. I thought I had put 8 or more. I think 12 oz would be much better.

    Store was out of orange cake mix - I used white - Used 10 oz OJ instead of water - added 1 container Yoplait Orange Creamsicle yogurt - added grated rind of one orange - Left out oil (accidentally, it was fine and rose well) -- - For Icing, I used a Whipped Cream Cream Cheese frosting.

    Try this frosting instead:<br/>Mix 1 box Vanilla instant pudding mix, 1 cup cold milk, 1 package dry orange Jello and 2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring. Beat by hand with a whisk until thickened. Fold in 1 tub Cool Whip. Frost the cake with this pudding mixture.

    I made the cake itself, not the frosting... I don't dig sour cream so much. Sorry! I instead used it with this: http://www.food.com/recipe/fluffy-white-frosting-128329<br/><br/>But the cake was so good... and easy! I like easy! I brought it into the office and everyone raved about it. THEY ATE THE WHOLE THING! Good thing I got to try some... the cake does live up to its name! And how I love me some creamicles!<br/><br/><br/>Definitely a keeper. Did I mention I love easy?<br/><br/>The end result

    The frosting for this is like soup, very runny. I tried to tweak it, didn't work at all. It was a big disappointment, I couldn't even get the frosting thick enough to try and put it on the cake.
