LITE ORANGE DREAMSICLE CAKE

A wonderful discovery, this recipe comes from an old elementary school cookbook and has been altered to decrease calories. Served chilled, it's even better the second day. A truly tasty delight, no one will know it's on the lite side!


CAKE

1 box of orange cake mix (substitute applesauce for oil to reduce fat)

1 small box of sugar free vanilla pudding

1 small box of sugar free orange Jello

ICING

8 ounces of low fat cream cheese

3 tablespoons of sugar free orange Jello

1 ½ cups of powdered sugar

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1 small container of fat free Cool Whip

DIRECTIONS

Mix cake according to box directions, substituting applesauce for oil. Add the vanilla pudding and Jello. Bake in a 9X13 pan.

Let the cake completely cool. Blend all icing ingredients, folding in the Cool Whip last. Spread evenly over cake and chill. Store in refrigerator.
