Orangesicle Bundt Cake

Orangesicle Bundt Cake

This cake was pretty exciting to make…

And I know you’re wondering why.

Well, besides being delightfully Spring-ish (I used Pillsbury Baking’s new Orangesicle Cake Mix and Frosting), and besides being all glazey and beautiful…I BAKED FROSTING INTO THE CAKE!

Yep, frosting mixed right in there with the batter.  RIGHT?

Ok, before I get ahead of myself, let’s talk about the flavor of the cake…Orangesicle.

The combination of a citrus and a buttery vanilla is kind of perfection.  Pillsbury has nailed it with some of their Spring themed Cake Mixes and Frosting pairs…Key Lime, Orangesicle and Pink Lemonade.

The thing about Spring is, you get to open your windows, enjoy the fresh air (before pollen strikes) and pull out all the bright ingredients that you have kept hidden away during the winter!  Basically, celebrate Spring!

Bringing your kids into the kitchen with you is really a fun way to celebrate the season, especially using the new Pillsbury Mixes, because they are so easy and accessible that the kids can basically do them on their own!

And honestly this is the perfect type cake to bring to a Spring picnic celebration, a sporting event or to enjoy just sitting outside enjoying the evening, celebrating life with your family!

So yeah, back to the cake.

Like I told you, I baked the frosting right up in there..I figured it would work the same way as oil or butter would, and keep the cake moist (sorry) and dense (but still springy), just like a bundt cake should be.

And it worked like magic!  Honestly this is one of the best and easiest methods ever and CAN NOT WAIT to try it with all sorts of flavors!!

Let me show you…

Beat that together and lastly add 3/4 of the can of frosting. Give a stir first…
Just plop it right in there and stir it until it’s smooth…
Pour the batter into a heavily greased bundt pan
And bake it for 50-60 minutes. Until it’s set.
Let it cool for about 10 minutes or so and then flip the pan onto your cake plate.

I hold my breath when I do this. It seems to help.

Let the cake continue to cool completely.

Next make your glaze.
Just add 1 tablespoon of milk into the remaining frosting and stir until it’s smooth.
Spoon that over your cake and voila!
That’s it….

Honestly, one of the best best best cakes I have ever made. So easy and so delicious!

    You do not know how excited I am about this cake! I saw these spring mixes and frosting in the store and wanted to buy like a dozen of them! Baking the frosting in the cake is genius!

  2. I made the Key Lime cake this weekend. Delicious. Topped it with our own icing, since the cans of icing ALL disappeared from the store’s shelves. They must be good.

  3. Belinda @themoonblushbaker

    this look so good. I love creamsicles (they go by a different name in Australia) but I never though of making a cake inspired by them before. how do you get you bundt not to stick to the pan? because the oilling up technique sometimes lets me down.

    1. Well, in all honesty, my first one stuck because I was being lazy. I grease and flour heavily with bundt pans. Also, I let it cool in the pan about 10 minutes. I have found too long it sticks, too little it sticks. Hope this helps!

    Loving this cake so much! My husband is a huge fan of creamsicle ice cream so he’d love this!

  5. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    Gorgeous cake and I would have pinned it anyway! I love creamsicles. And frosting!

  6. Shelly this looks fantastic! I can’t wait to try it out. I do have a question for you. I’ve baked with Pillsbury cake mixes in my bundt pans before and the cake always manages to fall. Do you have a trick to keeping your cakes from falling?

    1. I didn’t over mix, but also this is a denser cake with the addition of the frosting, so you shouldn’t have an issue. But definitely check the expiration date on the cake mix, because if it’s older, the leavening agent might not be effective. Also oven temperature can really make a difference. If your oven is off (warmer) by a few degrees this could definitely be the problem!
