Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Summer’s here! Time for swimming, biking, sunbathing, and picnics. You’ll probably be invited to lots of outdoor gatherings with family and friends this summer, and this I’ve got a perfect recipe for a dessert that’s sure to be a hit. My mom always made this orange jell-o cake when I was growing up. It’s light, cool, and refreshing – great for a summer get-together. It’s also easy to make. With our hectic summer schedules, I’m sure everyone will like that.

Orange Jell-O Cake

1 small package orange jell-o

1 orange cake mix (can also use white or yellow mix)

1 package Dream Whip

1 small package instant vanilla pudding

1 1/2 cups milk

1/4 tsp orange extract

Make jell-o (use 3/4 cup each of hot and cold water) and set aside. Make cake (in 9 x 13″ pan). Cool 15 minutes. Using handle of wooden spoon, poke holes throughout the top of cake. Spoon jell-o into holes. Refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight.

Mix Dream Whip, pudding, milk, and orange extract together and beat at low speed until blended. Increase to high speed and whip till soft peaks form, 4 to 6 minutes. Pour mixture over cake and spread. Then store cake in the refrigerator.

See, I told you it was easy. Your friends and family will love it, too. It’s also great for a fun day at home with the kids. I plan to make it at our house a lot this summer. Check out for more “cool” cake recipes!
