You won't want to leave anything on your fingers or your plate! This has got to be my all-time favorite cake. I made this for myself for my birthday not too long ago! : ) NOM, NOM, NOM!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This cake is not only finger-lickin' good, it's plate lickin' good. The cake is moist and fluffy with bits of mandarin oranges in every bite. Cool and creamy, the frosting tastes similar to a pina colada. A great dessert for any summer BBQ. Trust us, there won't be any leftovers. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
