Our family tradition is you pick the menu for your birthday diner and that is what we have. It has become a lot of fun over the years and interesting too. June 17 was one of our daughter-in-laws birthday and she wanted an orange dream cake which was a box mix that came in a kit last year. Prior to that we made it using an orange cake mix, but neither was to be found at the three local markets!!
What to do????
After a bit of deliberation it came to me to just pour the dry contents of a box of orange jello into a white cake mix and it worked just fine!! Otherwise I followed the cake box directions baking it in a 9" x 13" buttered and floured glass pan.
You can have any flavor dream cake you desire just by using the flavor you want.
Here is what I used for Julie's birthday dream cake:
1 white cake mix
2 small boxes orange jello
1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix
1 small carton thawed cool whip
1, 9" x 13" prepared glass baking dish
And I assembled it as above.
