This is my version of this cake. I have made it twice so far and both times everyone went nuts about how good it was;-)
The coffee syrups really seem to make the flavor ‘pop’. I use a full cup because they are not extracts, so they’re not as potent.

Orange Creamsicle Cake


  • 1 Orange box cake mix
  • the oil it calls for on the box
  • 4 eggs
  • one cup flour
  • one cup sugar
  • pinch’o'salt
  • 3 tablespoons vanilla
  • one cup Orange coffee syrup
  • half a cup of water
  • one 8 ounce container of sour cream (the real stuff)


  1. Mix it all up, bake at 325 for 15 to 20 minutes longer than the box says.
  2. For the filling, I mixed one box vanilla instant pudding with 2 cups of whipping cream.
  3. For the frosting I used Rich’s Bettercream and/or Pastry Pride and/or Frostin’ Pride.
  4. Hmmmm… is good for ya, right??? ;-)

Sounds fabulous! Has anyone tried orange Jell-o in place of the coffee syrup?

Duncan Hines has a recipe that uses Jello on their website.
