Larry's Birthday Cake

This is Larry's Birthday Pig Cake

What can I say, this was the moistest and tastiest cake I have made or eaten in a long time.
I can't take the credit for it though, although I did make it.  I got the recipe from The Pioneer Woman Cooks Blog.  Now since I have given credit where credit is due I will give you the recipe.

Pig Cake

For the cake:

1 box Yellow Cake Mix
1 stick Margarine (softened)
1 can (14 oz can) Mandarin Oranges, Drained, 1/2 cup juice reserved
4 whole Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

For the topping:
1 package (4 oz box) Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix
1 can (20 oz can) Crushed Pineapple, Juice Reserved
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
4 oz, Whipped Topping (such as Cool Whip)
Extra Mandarin Orange Slices, For Garnish

Preparation Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  For the cake, combine cake mix, margarine, 1/2 cup juice from the mandarin oranges, eggs and vanilla.  Beat for 4 minuutes on medium-high.  Add drained oranges and beat again until pieces are broken up and small.  Pour batter into greased and floured 9x13 inch baking pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown and set.  Remove from oven and cool completely.
Once cake is cool, blend juice from drained pineapples and the vanilla pudding mix.  Add powdered sugar and mix, then mix in whipped topping.  Stir in drained pineapple.  Spread on cooled cake and refrigerate several hours.
