Beth's Wedding Orange Cake

After 6 different orange cake recipe rejects, I finally hit on the right one for my daughter Beth’s wedding cake. It is a variation of the cake mix extender recipe found here on CC. It’s the first time I’ve played around with a recipe and made it my own sort to speak. Hope you all like it.

Beth’s Wedding Orange Cake


  • I used the cake mix extender recipe as the base:
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees

  • 1 box of butter cake mix
  • All the ingredients on the back of the cake mix box, except substitute orange juice for the water.
  • Zest of 1 small to med. size grapefruit ( yes grapefruit )


  1. Mix the above ingredients per package directions
  2. Once the above is mixed, add:
  3. 1 cup all purpose flour
  4. 1 cup sugar, 1 cup sour cream
  5. 1 egg
  6. 1/2 tsp salt
  7. 1 tsp LorAnn orange oil.
  8. Mix together thoroughly. Fold into pans (this batch of recipe will fill 3 9 inch round) and bake at 325 till done, time depends on size pans used as you can use different sizes without difficulty..
  9. I filled the layers with marmalade buttercream consisting of 1 part marmalade to 2 parts buttercream icing.

    Not going to go there!!
