How To Make dorthea's incredible orange cake & frosting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Pour yellow cake mix in a bowl. Add 3 beaten eggs and 1 can of mandarin oranges. (Use juice from can if mix seems too thick.) Stir in orange peel.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
Mix 1/2 bag powdered sugar, Crisco and evaporated milk with hand mixer. Continue to add powdered sugar until the desired consistency is reached.
