Orange Creamsicle Cake

creamsicleThere’s nothing quite like spending a day at the beach or by the pool and cooling down with an ice cold creamsicle. Those yummy orange and cream flavors of a frozen creamsicle were my inspiration for this cake which is loaded with orange flavor and topped off with cream and served chilled. It was a huge hit at my house and very reminiscent of a frozen creamsicle. If you love all things orange then you’ll go nuts for this cake. Did I mention how easy it is?

2. Using the end of a spatula, poke large holes all over the cake. (I don’t recommend using a fork. That’s what I did the first time and the jello didn’t spread evenly).
