Have you ever made a cake with soda-pop in it?

It’s crazy to think how this works, but it actually makes the cake light and fluffy, while still keeping it moist and delicious!

I’m wondering if it has anything to do with the carbon dioxide in the soda, giving the cake those extra air pockets for fluffiness!?

My kids are obsessed with those tiny mandarin oranges, so I figured this would be a fun cake to make and then top with the oranges.

Not only is there orange soda in the cake, but I also used it to help make the creamy, two ingredient frosting!

Do you remember Dream Whip? It’s found in the same isle as the cake mixes, and is basically a powdered whipped cream. Usually you would combine it with milk, but I used some cold orange soda and HOLY COW! That is some good stuff!

The color of the cake and frosting turned a pale orange, which I thought was gorgeous.

Of course if you wanted a more vibrant orange you could always add a few drops of orange food coloring to the cake and frosting.

But with a pretty orange segment on top of each slice, I think this is just a super simple and pretty cake!
