Orange Pineapple Cake

My best friend Marilyn (aka Rosie) gave me this recipe over 20 years ago.
When my youngest daughter was about 4 she had a new friend where we lived. Well Marilyn came over and she asked Kim who she was playing with and Kim replied...I am paying with my berry best friend Rosie...( You had to had been there, she use to talk like she was from the south lol )Well ever since that day Marilyn and I both call each other Rosie.

1 box yellow cake mix
2 cans Mandarin oranges , drain but reserve juice
1 cup oil
4 eggs

Combine cake mix, liquid reserved from the oranges, oil and eggs mix well. Fold in Mandarin orange pieces. Bake in sheet cake pan at 325 until done.

1 container cool whip (8 oz)
1 large can crushed pineapple drained
1 large box instant vanilla pudding

Put pudding in a bowl. Stir in drained pineapple then fold in cool whip. Frost cooled cake and refrigerate cake.

They call this a "Pea Pickin" cake around here. "They are just wonderful" said in my best Southern Accent.
