Pineapple-Orange Sunshine Cake

"This citrus cake is cool and fluffy! It's a lightened up version of a cake that was popular in the 1980's. The mandarin oranges are blended into the fluffy spongelike cake. Then, it's frosted with Cool Whip mixed with vanilla pudding and crushed pineapples. The flavors give the cake a very tropical feel." - The Kitchen Crew

Snickers Caramel Apple Salad

"Snickers Caramel Apple Salad one of those over the top desserts that we here in the South like to call a “salad”. Don’t worry, we can’t say it with a straight face, either.
