  • 4 eggs


  • 1 (12 ounce) container Cool Whip
  • 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple with juice
  • 1 large box instant vanilla pudding


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour three 8- or 9-inch cake pans.
  2. Batter: Beat eggs with cake mix; add reserved juice from oranges; stir in oil and fold in oranges using mixer to "break up" oranges.

  4. Let cool and remove from pans. Wrap for freezing when cooled.
  5. Icing: Mix ingredients together and ice cooled cake with mixture.
  6. Refrigerate cake after icing.
