This is one of my favorite cakes… it’s moist and light yet so satisfying. I’ve been adapting it for years and now it’s almost guilt-free. —Pam Sjolund, Columbia, South Carolina.

"I can't wait to try this although I won't use sugar free because my daughter in law doesn't like the children to eat anything with artificial sweetener . Oh by the way it's Pig Lickin not Pig Pickin"

"I was very disappointed with this recipe. I agree with Tilda 04, it was dry and had no flavor. I was expecting an orangey tasting cake and could taste no orange. I made this for my grandson, age 13, and he did not care for it at all. He loves everything I make for him and is so easy to please, but this did not please. Had to throw it away."

"I don't know what all the ravening is about. This cake was not good at all. Made it yesterday, I didn't think it was moist. In fact it was a little dry and didn't have a taste. I will not make it again."

"Nice, light, refreshing cake. My husband does not have a sweet tooth, so he appreciated this cake the most. He can't stand super sweet buttercream type frostings. The mixture of pudding, pineapple and whipped topping was perfect. The cake was much more spongey than most cakes which made it come out of the pan without any problems at all. I think I over-mixed it because there were very few discernible bits of mandarin orange in it. Next time I'll mix it less for sure. Thanks for this lovely alternative to the heavier, sweeter, quick desserts."
