Coconut Orange Cake

For this delicious cake you will need:

1 orange cake mix and whatever ingredients it calls for (we used Duncan Hines)
1 cup flaked, sweetened coconut


1 15 oz. can mandarin oranges, do not drain and crushed

1 large instant vanilla pudding mix (dry, not prepared)

1 cup flaked, sweetened coconut

1 8 oz. frozen whipped topping, thawed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray two 9 inch cake pans with nonstick baking spray.

Prepare cake mix according to package directions adding in 1 cup coconut.

Bake cakes according to times on package directions.

When the cake layers have cooled, make the frosting.
In a mixing bowl, crush the mandarin oranges with their juices with an electric mixer.
Stir in the instant pudding mix and coconut.
Fold in the whipped topping. Mix well.
Frost the cake layers.

If you want to garnish the top with the 5-6 of the mandarin orange slices, remove them before you crush the rest.

Refrigerate for at least a couple of hours.
