  • 1 box - white cake mix
  • 1 pkg (4 serving size) - orange jello
  • 2 cups - boiling water
  • 1 8 oz - cool whip
  • 1 small - can madarin oranges drained

prepare cake mix as directed and bake in a 13 by 9 baking dish. allow to cool. Dissolve jello in boiling water. Pierce cake all over with a fork. Pour jello over the cake, slowly. cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigeratoe for several hours or over night. Ice cake with cool whip. arrange oranges sections on top of the cool whip . Refrigerate any leftovers. People will more than likely want seconds so there may not be any leftovers.


This is a easy dessert to make but looks like you spent a lot of time making it. You can also change the jello and use any flavor you like. Just change the fruit on top. I have made it using lemom and than putting Sliced pineapple with a fewe pieces of fresh lemons.
