This is cake mix magic!

There is a part of my heart that really loves pre-boxed cake mix.

A lot of people like the ease of a cake mix, plus you typically only need a few ingredients, instead of like 10.

But my FAVORITE part about boxed cake mix is how it smells!!

NERD ALERT!

Does anyone else like that smell? It’s really hard to replicate that smell when making a homemade cake. I wish I could buy a candle that smells like a box of cake mix. Mmmmmm.

To make this Florida orange cake you need:
-a box of yellow cake mix
-orange juice
-vegetable oil
-eggs
-international delight french vanilla creamer

And for the frosting:
-cream cheese
-butter
-orange marmalade
-powdered sugar

I used International Delight french vanilla creamer in this recipe to add sweetness and creaminess. I love International Delight because it’s super versatile and you can use it in a lot of recipes, in addition to in your coffee! See all of our International Delight recipes.

The cake bakes up to be ultra moist and has a slight orange flavor!

This recipe was the first time I encountered cara cara oranges. I feel like they are becoming popular all of a sudden.

I went to pick out some oranges at the grocery store and I was clearly picking from the section labeled “navel oranges” but when I got home, I saw the stickers, and every single one was a cara cara orange.

And because I’ve never had one, I didn’t realize how vibrant and dark the insides are. The color almost reminds of me a grapefruit! It’s gorgeous, plus they taste good too!
