Orange Dreamsicle Cake

orange-creamsicle-cake Who can deny the nostalgic summer flavors of orange and vanilla? The sweet song of the ice cream truck, as it slowly cruises through your neighborhood….running into the house to collect your coins and hoping to make it back outside before he is gone! That sweet bliss when you finally get your orange dreamsicle bar and sit with your sisters in the shade and enjoy the creamy orangy goodness!  Pure joy!!

Since I live in San Diego, the summer is still going on over here! But for those of you who are yearning for summer to last a little longer, this cake can help bring back the feelings of summer!

My sisters and I loved the orange dreamsicles so much that my Grandma would stock up on them every time the ice cream man would come.  She had an extra freezer on her patio filled with orange dreamsicles! So you can see how much I love this flavor combination!!

  2. My daughter made this for my birthday this past weekend and it was absolutely delicious! I would highly recommend making this your family will love it! :)

  3. This cake looks amazing; I am planning to make it for Mother’s Day tomorrow. I was just curious about the topping. Exactly what is Pastry Pride?

    • No I have never used this icing under fondant. If you want to cover this cake with fondant, I would use a different icing like a buttercream frosting that crusts. The pastry pride will not hold up under fondant! hope this helps

  4. Looks so great! I had a question on the filling…how many total ounces do you use of vanilla pudding? (I wasn’t sure if they were so mall or larger boxes) Thank you!

    • Hi Jennifer! I used two small boxes, not sure how many oz that is? I updated the recipe, so thank you for catching that!
