mini icing dipped bundt cake

1 package of yellow cake mix
1 package of instant lemon pudding mix(3 ounces)
3/4 cup of orange juice
4 eggs
Oil (amount on the package)

Preheat oven at 350 degrees.  While the oven is preheating, grease your mini bunt cake pans (I use spray Pam).
Stir the cake mix and pudding mix together.
pour in the orange juice, oil and eggs.  You can even use a few drops of lemon extract or lemon essential oil.
Beat on low speed until blended.

Pour into your bundt dish and bake them 30 minutes.  Let it cool for 5 minutes in the pan and move to a wire rack to cool completely.


What You Need:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk, or more
  • extract/flavoring
    bowls of icing

    1. Melt 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) of butter in a saucepan or microwave.
    2. Sift 2 cups of powdered sugar into a medium size bowl.
    3. Add the melted butter to the powdered sugar.
    4. Add 2 tablespoons of milk.
      Tip: For a richer and creamier glaze, use heavy cream in place of the milk.
    5. If desired, add 1/4 teaspoon of almond or lemon extract or 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla for flavor.
    6. Beat until smooth and creamy, adding a little more milk if necessary.
    7. We put ours into different bowls and added food coloring.

 Just use confectioner’s sugar and a couple tablespoon of milk or lemon extract. Brush over cakes (I used the back of a spoon or you can even dip the tops).

  1. Your recipe directions say something about adding oil but there isn’t an amount listed in the ingredients. Can you please clarify?


    1. Recipe states use the amount of oil listed on cake box. Mine calls for 1/4 cup.

  2. I started making it and I saw the same discrepency about the oil. Why no response months later? I hope I didn’t waste all the ingredients in the double batch I just mixed.
