How to Make Mandarin Orange Cake - From Scratch
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans.
- In a small bowl, whisk flour and baking powder. Set aside.
- 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
