Orange Cake Update

Special Louisiana guests have come and gone. Grill is cool and deck fans are now off (helped, but was still HOT), and dishes are put up. A rare nap DID take place...and now here I am...with you...and I am happy to report

What is that saying? 
"A picture is worth a thousand words"
Well, I sure am glad because that would be a lot of typing! I promised

Orange Cake

One box Pillsbury Classic White Cake Mix
3 whole eggs
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup buttermilk
2/3 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 small package sugar-free orange jello

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix all ingredients until moistened and beat about 2 more minutes at medium speed until smooth. Prepare pans, pour in and bake.  I used an 8x3 inch round pan and baked about 37 minutes.  Make SURE cake is completely done, but not overdone (ovens vary).  Cool cake in pan at least 12 - 15 minutes then turn out on cake rack to completely cool before torting into two layers.  I filled with a pineapple filling (I gave another link that has a custard base on the last post).  Then cover with a pinapple orange cream cheese frosting.  I added a tablespoon of orange concentrate and 2 tablespoons of the pineapple juice to my favorite cream cheese frosting.  You can find a classic cream cheese recipe at Martha Stewart's site.  Decorate as you wish or not and just ENJOY!
