Growing up, I didn’t like sweet potatoes. I just didn’t get why they were a thing. Potatoes aren’t supposed to be sweet, right? Fast forward many years and I finally gave sweet potatoes a fair chance. And guess what? I absolutely adored them.
I tried my first sweet potato cake a few years ago and totally fell in love. This version starts with a Betty Crocker® cake mix, and is finished off with a delicious orange cream cheese frosting.
You will need a box Betty Crocker yellow cake mix, eggs, milk, orange, vegetable oil, cooked and mashed sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie spice, cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and orange extract.
