You’ve never used orange soda like this before My Incredible Recipes
(My Incredible Recipes)

If you enjoyed eating Creamsicles on hot summer days when you were a kid, this cake has your name all over it. It contains both orange soda and orange zest, making it a real treat for citrus lovers.

It’s worth noting that, due to the soda, the cake rises much more as it bakes than other cakes. Don’t fill your pan more than two-thirds full; if there’s leftover batter, use it to make cupcakes!
