"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."
"I don't get what all the fuss is about. I made this for my family of 4 plus my mother-in-law who was visiting. None of us thought it was anything special. It was okay, but I can't see that I'll be making it again."
"On my gosh, is this wonderful!!! Refreshing and so tasty! My Group loved this, ate it up within 5 minutes. This is a definite keeper.....in answer to Marykauhi, I just used the small package of Jello Instant Pudding.......I think that 1 oz pkg is a typo. Try this!!!!!! I'm not a fruit type dessert fan, but wow, is this yummy!!!!"
"I originally got all mixed up and put the pineapple in the cake and the mandarin orange in the topping which I made with 8 oz cream cheese instead of the whip topping! Yesterday I made this again and was careful to follow directions exactly. I very much preferred my mixed up version and will be making it that way from now on."
"This has been a hit with everyone who has tried it from family, friends and coworkers. Many have asked me for the recipe."
