Orange Creamsicle Cake & some weekend fun

1 - ingredients, 2 - Orange Creamsicle cake and mini strawberry cheesecake
mason jar desserts, 3 - YUMMY cake!, 4 - the men - Kevin (BIL), Marvin
 (nephew), Dad, Jarek (DS), and behind Jarek, John (DH)

Had a great weekend with family...parents came over Friday and stayed until Monday;  sister and her family came over Sunday for a cook out.  We did a belated Fathers' Day celebration with our dad on Sunday.  When I was deciding on what to make for dessert, I knew this cake would be perfect.  Orange Creamsicle cake.  I did change it up a little...I did not make cupcakes or use her icing recipe.  Due to time limitations I decided to make a cake and I used store bought frosting.  I picked up one of the new stir in frosting in orange creme flavor...it was good, but pretty sweet.  So....to help cut the sweetness I did not frost the middle of the cake, but used orange marmalade instead.  It was YUMMY!  I also made strawberry cheesecake in little mason jars.  We had a nice dinner, visiting time, and yummy desserts.

Now to get my craft on...I need to make cards, do a challenge, finish up some swaps....feels like a Monday :)  Hope you are having a WONDERFUL day!  Thanks for stopping by.

Dawn - I know there is an orange cake mix, but it seems VERY HARD to find here,so....now I don't have to worry. Orange cake is one of my day's favorites.
