Fruit Loop Cake

Deneece Gursky


Yesterday was my nieces birthday so I had a party for her and of course she requested I make the cake lol. I had about an hour to bake and ice it lol before leaving for dinner. So I showed her the last of the five boxes of cake mix left from my daughters shopping spree and she chose an orange mix as the base. I added some orange juice instead of water and some orange yogurt and ended up with this. After singing happy birthday and blowing out candles we cut the cake and everyone had a slice. Everyone was unanimous in thinking it ended up tasting like fruit loops. lol. it was moist and delicious and definitely kid friendly : ) I used a white icing with a bit of orange extract in it as the frosting and also in between the two layers.

1 box orange cake mix
3 eggs
1 1/3 c orange juice (mine had pulp)
1/3 c oil
3/4 of a single serving orange yogurt
your favorite vanilla frosting with 1/2 t orange extract blended in

Directions Step-By-Step

Grease 2-9 inch pans and lightly flour them. Preheat your oven to 350
Put cake mix in large bowl
Add remaining ingregients (except frosting)
Mix on medium speed until blended well.
Divide batter between to pans and bake according to box directions. (I used 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes) Tooth pick should come out clean.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely
Invert one cake onto cake plate and spread frosting on cake. Invert second cake onto a plate and flip over so the flat side is now on top of first cake.
Frost cake and decorate as desired.
Now that I know the cake tastes like fruit loops I may incorporate them into the decorating next time I make this cake for the kiddies : )
