Orange Cake

  • 1 box vanilla cake mix
  • 1 stick of butter melted
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups pureed whole navel oranges about 2 medium oranges


  • 2 cans white icing
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup pulp free orange juice
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • Combine cake mix, butter, eggs, and orange puree and combine with an electric mixer.
  • Pour into two greased 8 inch round baking pans and bake on center rack for about 30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely.
  • For the icing, while cake is cooling, whisk together 1 can of icing and 1 cup of powdered sugar. Add to a piping bag.
  • For the glaze, in a small bowl add 1 cup of powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Then whisk in orange juice until you reach your desired consistency.
  • When cake is cooled, spread remaining can of icing between layers. Then pipe powdered sugar/icing mix on outside of cake. To pipe rosettes, start in the middle then move the tip in a counter-clockwise spiral around the center.
  • When the sides are covered, pipe a circle on the top of the cake, at the outermost edge, to keep the glaze from spilling over.
  • Pour glaze on top of cake, and garnish with a slice of orange.
  • Enjoy!
