• 1 pkg yellow cake mix
  • 11 oz can(s) mandarin oranges, undrained
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1/4 c vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 – 8 oz can(s) crushed pineapple (juice used for cake and pineapple used for frosting)
  • 12 oz whipped topping, thawed
  • 3.4 oz box of instant French vanilla or pistachio pudding (I use the French vanilla)
  • 1 – 1 1/2 c shredded coconut


  1. Ready the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add the oranges, whipped topping, eggs, oil, coconut, pudding, and butter. Beat until well combined.
  4. Fill the prepared pans with the batter.
  5. Put the batter inside the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until an inserted toothpick in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  6. Remove the cakes from the oven and allow them to cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes.
  7. Use a fork to poke small holes on top of the cakes.
  8. Drizzle the pineapple juice over the cakes and make sure to fill all of the holes.
  9. Add all the ingredients for the frosting into a mixing bowl. Stir until well mixed.
  10. Add the frosting over the cakes and spread it evenly.
  11. Serve warm and enjoy!
