"Remember those yummy treats on a stick when you were a child? Frozen orange on the outside and creamy vanilla on the inside? Well, here's a cake that tastes just like those wonderful treats! Note: If you cannot find an orange cake mix, use a package of lemon cake mix and add 1 small envelope of orange drink mix powder."

I think that the topping was great, but I think the 2 cups of liquid (one hot and one cold) added to the gelatin is too much and makes the cake "wet". I think this recipe would be much better if the gelatin was only mixed with one cup of hot water.


It's not often I say this, but... This cake was absolutely vile. I have no idea how it got a five-star rating. I heeded the "too sweet" comments and used home-whipped cream instead of the topping, and I still couldn't choke it down. In the words of my six-year-old son, "This tastes like medicine!" The problem here is that we're not used to such obviously artificial flavors, so I think next time I'll stick to making a nice traditional orange syrup cake, and serve it with thick or clotted cream.


Very good and cool on a hot summer day. Would be great for a carry-in.
