Orange Dreamsicle Cake

Servings: 10-12
"I have alot of requests to make this cake, and so many requests for the recipe. The last time I made it, I only added 2 tablespoons of orange juice to the icing and it was not runny, and was easier to spread.".....Margie Kirkman

For the Cake:
1 box Duncan Hines Orange Supreme Cake Mix
1 box (3 oz. size) Orange Flavored Jello
(Mix and sift above ingredients together).
1/3 cup cooking oil or soft margarine
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups water or orange juice (I use the orange juice)
(Add these ingredients to the above sifted cake mix and jello mix).

For the Icing:
1 (8 oz.) carton sour cream
1/4 to 1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup white sugar
1 (8 oz.) container Cool Whip (Frozen Whipped Topping), thawed
1 (9 oz.) bag flaked coconut

For the Cake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C). Grease and flour two 9-inch (23 cm) round cake pans.

Sift cake mix and jello mix together. Add to this mixture the cooking oil, the eggs, the water (or orange juice, if using). Beat well with electric mixer.

Evenly pour batter into prepared cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees F (180 C) for 20 to 30 minutes, or until cakes come loose from sides of pans. Cool cakes on rack for at least 20-30 minutes.

For the Icing:
In a large bowl using an electric mixer, mix all icing ingredients together, beat until fluffy.

To Assemble Cake:
Invert one cooled cake layer onto serving plate. Spread with icing. Place second cake layer on top of first layer and frost top and sides of cake. Store cake in refrigerator.

Makes 10-12 servings.
