  • The Mandarin Orange Cake is wonderful. The only suggestion I have is to put in your recipe that you mix dry ingredients as in the box of vanilla pudding. If I had not known that you do not make the pudding but add it dry to the pineapple, I would have made the pudding as normal. Again, thanks for the wonderful cake recipe.

  • My Mother has been making this cake for many, many years... since my childhood. Her variation though is to bake the cake batter in three 8 inch round cake pans. Let cool and frost between the layers and on the top and sides of cake. For some reason, it tastes sooo much better this way than when done in the 13x9 rectangular pan. Also be sure the frosted cake is well-chilled before serving, delicious!

  • THIS RECIPE IS AN ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL DESSERT! VERY SIMPLE AND A REAL CROWD PLEASER! I HAVE BEEN COOKING MANY YEARS, AND THIS ONE IS AT THE TOP OF MY LIST THANKS A BUNCH!!

  • This is a DELICIOUS cake. I live in NC & we call it "Pig Picking" cake & we make in 3 layers also.

  • This is my husband and son's favorite cake. (It's the only one I'm willing to make that's not from scratch.)

  • My mother has made this for years. She always called it her "pea pickin cake" it's still one of my favorites and so good. I did a variation the last time I made it. I also made 3 round cakes with the frosting in between and around. After all was finished I sprinkled toasted coconut on the frosting.
