Hi all,

I'm new here and have enjoyed reading and exploring the site.

I am making a wedding cake for my husbands wedding on August 21st.
It's going to be a three tier cake 10,8,and 6 inch two layer tiers. I was going to do a 4inch top layer for thier anniversary but the wedding is to be outside so getting it frozen won't be possible. I will just do a cake for them when the time comes.

I was wondering if any of you wonderful bakers have any ideas to make an Orange Creamsicle cake that can be served outside and doesn't have to be kept cool. I am covering the cake in fondant.

The only idea I can think of is to make one layer orange cake and one layer vanilla cake. I'm just not sure of what to fill the cake with.

Also I wanted to do different flavors for the other tiers but not flavors that will totally clash. Any ideas?

Thank you,

Misty

Misty I dont know why you could not use orange juice in place of some of the water.. I would make a test run cake to see what amount of orange you want it to taste like I would also use a Vanilla White Cake mix .. Hope this helps..


You can also add a box or orange jello to your water and mix and add to the cake mix... I would try them before to make sure you like the taste before you just make the cakes..

LadyCake thank you for the suggestions about the jello and the orange juice. I'll try that tonight. I'm making a test cake without the fondant for my in-laws who are coming home from vacation today.

Any suggestions about filling?

How about mandrean oranges.. But there again that could be a lot of orange... you may just want to put buttercream frosting in the middle.. and call it good...

I was thinking maybe just buttercream or a twinkie-like filling. Or I wonder if candy flavorings would work in icing. If they do, you could maybe flavor the buttercream with a hint of orange flavoring. Not sure if this helps but thought I'd post just in case.

Here's a link for twinkie filling and cake: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-1284-1-Twinkie-Cake.html

HTH,

I think this recipe is what you are looking for:
http://cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-1611-Orange-Creamsicle-Cake-and-Frosting.html

The recipe calls for the Orange Duncan hines cake, however I think White cake, or Vanilla cake would taste great as additional layers without clashing.
Additionaly you could garnish the cake with well-drained mandarin oranages or some curled orange peel.

Please let us know how it turned out!
