It is not often, and I do not mean to imply that using a mix is wrong or that the way I cook might be superior in any way, cause trust me it is not! However, something important happened a while back. Manufacturers stopped putting hydrogenated fats in cake mixes.
Because of that wise move on their part, I have started using a cake mix, from time to time. Granted the manufacturers won't get rich on the amount of cake mixes that I purchase, but still, it is fun to try a different dessert that also happens to start with a mix.

Orange Dream Cake
adapted from: My kind of cooking
1 yellow cake mix
2 cans (11oz) mandarin oranges - drain syrup from one can only!
1/3 c oil
1 c orange juice
2 T honey
1/4 c sugar
1 T butter
1 T orange juice concentrate
1 t vanilla
1 - 1 1/4 c powder sugar
Combine cake mix, eggs, oranges, and oil. Beat until smooth. Pour into a prepared 9X13 pan, bake 35-40 minutes or until tests done in your oven. Remove from oven, set aside to cool.
Combine orange juice, sugar and honey, bring to a boil. Simmer 1 minute, remove from heat to cool.
Poke holes in cake with a large fork, spoon syrup evenly over cake. Let cool completely.
Combine remaining ingredients for frosting. Beat until smooth, glaze cooled cake.
Serve with vanilla ice cream if you want your dessert to taste like an old fashion creamsicle!
