Directions

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans.
2
In a small bowl, whisk flour and baking powder. Set aside.
3
Cream butter and 2 cups of sugar. Add eggs one at a time until all combined.
4
Add entire can of mandarin oranges. Beat into batter, slightly crushing up oranges.
5
Slowly add flour mixture until well mixed.

Divide batter between 2 pans. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes, or until pick comes out clean.
6
While cakes are baking, make the frosting.

Whip cream with remaining 1/2 cup of sugar and pudding mix until stiff peaks form. Hand stir-in pineapple and juice. ( I had a few mandarin oranges left and threw them in along with the pineapple for color).

Refrigerate till ready to use.
7
When cakes are baked; cool in pans for 2 minutes.

Remove from pans and completely cool on wire rack.
8
I place 3 sheets of waxed paper on serving platter, to have a mess free plate after frosting. Just pull the sheets out from under the cake when frosting is finished.
9
Place first cooled cake, bottom side up. Frost the top, add the second layer frost the top and sides.

I sprinkled some toasted coconut on the top. Completely optional. Should refrigerate 1 hour prior to serving.

My kids wouldn't wait till the cake had a chance to set up...so as to why filling looks a little soft..lol
