Fanta Pound Cake

Fanta Pound Cake has a fabulous texture as every good pound cake should, a slight orange flavor, and a thick cream cheese icing.

It’s basically a pound cake with a little orange flavoring from Fanta soda and some orange zest. But we know a plain pound cake can be one of the most awesome desserts right?

And this one is totally decked out for summer a bright orange color.

There are certain sodas I only drink during the summer. There’s something about an ice-cold Cheerwine or Fanta Orange on a hot summer day. Your energy starts to wane due to the oppressive heat and then a couple of gulps of Fanta Orange, laden with sugar, can give you enough of a boost to refrain from taking a nap.

A combination of butter and shortening plus a packet of whipped topping mix gives this cake an incredible texture. So rich and buttery and dense, but tender. It’s almost velvety.
