  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 3 containers white frosting or three cups
  • 1 container chocolate frosting or 1 cup
  • Optional: Orange extract


  • Bake chocolate cake in 8in round cake pan. One cake will be used, so you can wrap the other 8in round cake and place in freezer.
  • For the white and orange layers, simply prepare white cake batter as you normally would. Divide batter in half and tint one half orange. (Add orange extract if you wish)
  • Bake white cake batter in 8in cake pan and bake orange cake batter in 8in cake pan.
  • For frosting, take one container of white frosting and tint it orange. I used gel food coloring and about 4-6 drops.

To assemble cake:

  • Place chocolate cake on cake stand. Place thin layer of chocolate frosting.
  • Place orange layer on top and cover in thin layer of orange frosting.
  • Finally, place white cake on top and cover entire cake in crumb coat.
  • Decorate as you wish.
