The 4th ingredient is 2/3 cup cold water. Is this for the Jello? I ask because the last ingredient is also 2/3 cup water for the "topping".

This cake is AWESOME!!! Was already asked to bring this cake to our next dinner function.

@doverspike 1490146, 1. If your local grocery store does not carry orange cake mix, you can purchase it online. Here is a link: We have updated the recipe to include answers to your other questions.

Three questions: 1. Where do you purchase an orange cake mix? I have never seen one. 2. What size cool whip? 3. Do you prepare the vanilla pudding before adding, or just add the dry pudding mix?

Thanks for catching that mistake! We have updated the recipe. -RecipeLion Editors

I think you meant to say a long tined fork.
