Orange Dream Whipped Cream Cake

By Dennis Weaver and Alice Wach

This whipped cream cake is made with a vanilla bean baby cakes mix with a touch of orange flavor and topped with orange-flavored whipped cream. It’s light, citrusy, and just a dream for the tastebuds.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  2. Mix the cake batter in your stand type mixer, per package instructions.
  3. Add the orange flavor.
  4. Spread batter in a greased or parchment-lined 9X13 cake pan and bake for 18 minutes at 325°F or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  5. Allow the cake to cool in the pan on a wire rack. If you are using parchment paper, grab the edges of the paper and lift to transfer it to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling.
  6. After it has cooled, trim the edges back 1/4 to 1/2-inch. Use a ruler to cut the cake in half either long ways or short ways.
  7. You are now ready to stack and assemble your cake. Put either frosting or a filling between the layers, cover the cake with frosting, and decorate it.
