by Brenda Sparks

Here are a pair of dessert recipes with a citrus twist. Both recipes are by Iris Keplinger, and they were published in a cookbook compiled by the Clinchfield Senior Adult Center in the 1980s.

1 can mandarin oranges, do not drain
4 eggs
1/2 cup oil

Mix together cake mix, oranges, eggs and oil. Beat 4 minutes on medium speed. Bake in 3 layers at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool. Mix all icing ingredients together and spread between, on top and on sides of layers. Keep refrigerated. Cake will freeze well.
