1. Bake the cake as directed in a 9 x 13" pan. Let cake cool completely. Poke holes in cooled cake.

2. Mix 1 package orange gelatin dessert with 1 cup boiling water and 1 cup cold water. Pour over cake.

3. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.

4. Mix pudding mix with cold milk, the other package of orange gelatin dessert and vanilla.

5. Beat by hand with a whisk until thickened. Fold in the whipped topping.

6. Frost the cake with the pudding mixture.


For a layered Creamsicle Cake: Make the cake batter as directed, then pour batter evenly into 3 round 9" cake pans. Bake cakes as directed and let cool. Then, make the orange gelatin as directed on the package — but with this version, you'll let the gelatin set up instead of pouring it into the cake. We recommend using your round cake pans, or using a 13x17" jelly roll pan (1" deep cookie sheet with edges). Once you pour the liquid gelatin mixture into the pans, it will need to be refrigerated for about 4 hours. Meanwhile, make the pudding mixture according to the original recipe. Finally, layer in this order: cake, gelatin pudding mixture. Repeat once more for a 6-layered Creamsicle Cake.

This cake is turning out very well for the first time making it. But I do wonder what the 2 lrg eggs are for? I made the cake as per the package like the recipe says but now I wonder what the 2 extra eggs are for?

I just made this for a birthday tomorrow, but I am curious about the eggs??? Are they for the cake mix? The cake mix I used called for three eggs, so that is what i used, otherwise I don't know what they are for.

Wow. This one brings back memories of the ice cream truck.... yummie. Super easy and absolutely delish. It disappeared!!! My family devoured it


That was horrible! Cake "domed" in the pan (any hints to fix that would be appreciated) added jello only for it to spill to edges, and absorbed into bottom of pan making cakes soggy. Made "Frosting" only for it NOT to thicken but a runny consistency. Would not mix with cool whip. One big soggy runny mess. *I did not use noted brands, Didn't think it would matter that much. Maybe it does.
