Mandarin Orange Cake with Pineapple Frosting is so light and refreshing and is the perfect cake for summer (or any other time too)! Mandarin Orange Cake is so easy to make and the “frosting” is much lighter than traditional frosting which I love! This cake has been one of my absolute favorite desserts for years and I’m not even a huge fan of cake, so that’s saying something!   The flavors of the cake and the frosting are so light and refreshing – I promise this cake will be a big hit at your next party!

Mandarin Orange Cake 

Cake:
1 yellow cake mix
1/2 cup oil
4 eggs
11 oz can mandarin oranges (with the juice)

Mix all ingredients together and bake at 350 for 35 minutes.  If you make the cake in a bundt pan (rather than a 9X13), the cook time will be closer to 45 minutes.

Frosting:
8 oz Cool Whip
1 sm. can crushed pineapple (8 oz)
1 sm. pkg vanilla instant pudding

Once the cake is cooled, mix the pineapple and pudding together.  Let set for a few minutes until slightly thickened and then fold in the Cool Whip.  Spread on cake and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.  Enjoy!
