I made this yesterday for today (today being Christmas). I know it's not a very Christmas-y dessert but I wanted something completely different from the half-dozen things we had for dessert on Thanksgiving. I made the lemon variety and it was amazing! One could make this cake in such a variety of flavors, limited only by what extracts you can find. I do have some advice regarding the frosting though. Make this cake the day (or at last many hours) before you are going to serve it. Chill the frosting for at least an hour before putting it on the cake as it will firm up and be able to support the layers better (allowing you to put more between each layer). Frost the cake, reserve the leftover frosting, and chill. When you serve it, frost it again, using as much of the frosting as you can. Its not sweet, so don't be afraid to use LOTS of frosting. That's why the recipe makes as much frosting as it does, because its GOOD. There's no need to waste it.



This recipe is GREAT! I had never heard of an orange creamsicle cake, but when it was requested of me, I of course turned to this website. My only suggestion is to cut down the recipe for the icing...unless you plan on icing more than your cake. I would say half everything and it should be more than enough without extra containers of it left over. This is the PERFECT orange cream cake and does really taste like the summertime favorite!



Fantastic!! Tastes just like the creamsicle! The cake is really moist and flavorful, but it is the frosting that makes this cake. The frosting really has that creamsicle flavor that is so yummy! I chilled the cake briefly to make it easier to cut the layers. I used a generous amount of frosting between the layers and iced the top and sides as well. The cake looked beautiful after it was cut. The rich orange color and the creamy white - just spectacular. Thanks for the recipe!
