I am trying to make an Orange Dreamsicle cake that Macsmom had suggested. I am supposed to use a vanilla mousse filling but I am not sure how to make that. Does anuone have a recipe they can share or thoughts on a different filling for this cake?
Thanks icon_smile.gif

I used the filling from this recipe. Except in place of the cool whip, I used pastry pride. Everyone loved it. The cake mix recipe on that link has Macsmom's old recipe, I believe she changed it once she discovered the wasc.

Oh, and I think I remember from reading the gourmet thread, Macsmom's mousse was bettercream/pastry pride and pudding mix. Whip the bettercream, add pudding mix and whip until thick.

What is the correct orange dreamsicle recipe - I am not able to find it in the hundreds of pages of the Gourmet Flavors thread. It takes hours to go through it and my computer is so slow. Can some please post this recipe for me?

I used Macsmom's recipe because she rocks!!
It is 1 box white
2 cup melted orange sherbert
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
2 yoplait orange creme yogurt invidual cups
1 pkg. vanilla instant pudding
3 eggs
2 TBS. oil
2 Tsp. orange extract

I doubled this to get a two tier cake plus a handful of cupcakes. Also, I couldn't find orange extract at my grocery so I subst. 1 tsp. of coconut extract . Smells sooooo good and my DH has been licking the bowl instead of waiting for the cakes to cool, lol!!!

That is why I was asking - as I knew there were some changes to this recipe and I am going to try making it in a few weeks and I wanted to know what was the correct one to use.

But if yours turned out great I am going to try the recipe you posted. The Gourmet link is just way toooooo long and after a while you don't know what is correct.

Thanks for answering my question.

Awesome...we are going to eat the cupcakes tonight and the cake tomorrow icon_smile.gif. I will take a census and let you know, lol!
I know what you mean about the changes. I actually copied it from a thread yesterday where Macsmom wrote it and then I saw it the other way? Probably can make it either, not a very specific recipe icon_wink.gif

ok, Peridot..the census is in. I had my hubby, three kids, two neighbors and their 5 kids combined all try the Orange/Coconut Dreamsicle recipe......a RESOUNDING YUMMMMMMMM! They all loved it!
Couple of points I would make though...make SURE you use Betty Crocker and not DH...DH will make it too sticky and chewy tasting. Also, minimize the cocnut as it is a very overwelming flavor or just go with orange. Everyone loved the coconut but it wasn't the TRUE Orange Dreamsicle cake icon_smile.gif. I also filled it with Vanilla Pudding mixed with Cool Whip. Next time I will use 2 cool whip containers to one came out very thick 1 to 1 and I had to add some milk to thin it out.
Good Luck...let me know what you think icon_smile.gif!
