    Orange Dreamsicle Cake

    1 package Orange Supreme cake mix
    12 ounce bowl of cool whip
    16 ounce container of sour cream
    1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
    1 small package of orange Jell-O

    Prepare the orange cake according to directions on package,
    and back in round cake pans. When it is done, cool the cakes COMPLETELY. When the cakes are cooled, slice each in half
    to produce four round layers.

    Meanwhile, blend together the cool whip, sour cream and
    sugar in a large mixing bowl with a hand held mixer. Place
    the first layer of the orange cake on a serving dish. Cover generously with the whipped topping mixture. Repeat the process with the other layers, making sure to use the whit frosting between all layers, EXCEPT the top layer.

    Mix as least half,( I usually use most, if not all) the orange
    jello POWDER into the remaining whit frosting. Cover the
    top layer and sides of the cake with it.

    Chill to store, slice to serve.

    Make sure to keep any leftovers refrigerated, if there are
    any.
