Orange Dream Cake

This cake was supposed to be an orange version of the Strawberry Soda Pop  Cake from Mommy’s Kitchen but the whipped topping melted all over the place. I thought the cake was cool enough but I was wrong. Thankfully I had bought some extra vanilla pudding mix when we went grocery shopping so I was able to salvage the cake. Now if you’re looking for a cake to come out in nice pretty slices stay far away from the recipe. It is so moist that it falls apart when you cut it but the taste is amazing.
