Orange Blossom Dream Cake

Summer Sunshine On A Plate...

This cake is... in a word...delightful. Moist...decadent...yummy!

Originally known as Pig Lickin' or Pig Pickin' Cake -
 this incredibly delicious cake will win your heart.
I have made a few changes to the recipe that truly puts it over the top!

Orange Blossom Dream Cake
1 box yellow cake mix
1 can mandarin oranges & juice (11 oz.)
3/4 c oil
4 eggs
Mix all together until well blended. Pour into a buttered 9x13" pan.
Bake @ 350 for 25 minutes or until a pick comes out clean.
Place on a wire rack and poke holes on the entire top with a bamboo stick or fork tines.
Spoon glaze on hot cake.
Cool on rack and then place in refrigerator until completely cool.
Ice cake with frosting and chill until time to serve.
Mandarin Orange Glaze
1/2 c mandarin orange juice
(drain another can and reserve oranges for frosting)
1/4 c powdered sugar
Mix together well and pour on top of hot cake.
Dreamy Frosting
1 9oz. container whipped topping
1 small package instant vanilla pudding
1 can crushed pineapples with juice
1/2 c sour cream
reserved mandarin oranges
Stir together until well mixed - top cake.

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.
