Orange Dreamsicle Cake

One of my favorite movies is My Big Fat Greek Wedding. The story of a not-beautiful-by-American-standards girl meets the love of her life at her family’s restaurant. Lots of delicious food is involved as well- the Greeks apparently like to eat! I think we’d get along just fine. :)

I also love the HUGE family portrayed in Toula’s family. My family is huge as well and I just love getting together with everyone for catching up, and you guessed it, eating delicious food!

One of my favorite scenes in the movie is when Toula’s and Ian’s parents are meeting for the first time. Ian’s mom is giving Toula’s mom a bundt cake, and trying to explain how to say the word correctly.

I also can’t get enough of the Dreamsicle flavor lately. (I also created a low-cal Creamy Dreamsicle Shake). I happened to have a cake mix on hand this weekend when I decided to try out a dreamsicle cake. As I was getting ready to make the cake, I commented to Ben that “every Southern woman should have a Bundt cake pan.” But then I started thinking, “Is it really a Southern thing?” So if you’re not Southern, please tell me if Bundt cakes are popular where you live!

this orange dreamsicle cake starts with a cake mix! So easy yet so yummy!

This dreamsicle cake was totally easy.  Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

  5. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
  6. To prepare frosting: using a blender, blend together all the frosting ingredients.
