This is a low-fat, low sugar, light and fluffy cake.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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. Serve this cake cold straight from the fridge. It's a nice cool treat for a hot day. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
