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…

First grab your cake mix and frosting match…
Mix in some eggs, milk and a little oil.

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!

    Orangesicle is my favorite flavor … mainly because it reminds me of summers in Alabama at my Grandmother’s House and walking to the drug store an Orangesicle Cone! Can’t wait to try this recipe. Thanks!!

  2. Ellen@BakeItWithBooze

    So, I have a few of these canned frostings and cake mixes to use up…Genius! Alas, though, I can never get the rafflecopter to load in IE. I’ll have to come back when I have access too Chrome. Thanks!

  3. The last few times the “read more” has been missing and you have to go to the website and find recently added to get the rest of the story and the recipe…much quicker when the “read more…” is there!

  4. Hi Shelly

    This looks delish and will definitely try it out soon. But just two questions, do you think these will work out as cupcakes (if so any suggestions) also for the bundt cake do you suggest baking it for 60 minutes?


    1. I think it will work as cupcakes, just adjust the bake time to 15-20 minutes. And you’re asking about the bake time of the bundt? Yes, 50-60 minutes as the recipe says. Thanks!

  5. This looks and sound delicious. What an interesting idea to bake frosting right into the cake. I definitely want to try this out. I don’t have a bundt pan though…how do I need to adjust the baking time for a regular cake pan?

    1. Finally got around to baking this yummy recipe! Needed a little more Spring before Winter comes around. 🙂 I baked as cupcakes for 15-20 minutes. The frosting needed a bit more work to get to the right consistency after adding the tbsp of milk. I popped it in the microwave for a bit and it was perfect. Drizzled and spread over the tops of the cupcakes. I think I will use this method for frosting again in the future. Cake came out very moist.

    Yeah, I feel an orange creamsicle cake coming on this weekend. If I’m careful, I can even hide the cake mix and frosting from my kids, and it will be a big surprise!

    Frosting in the cake is genius! And the options are endless!! But this cake does look delish!!
