Orange-Scented Pound Cake and Frosting Fondue

Blogger Cheri Liefeld of Adventures in the Kitchen shares an easy idea for kid-friendly fondue using Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy frosting.

Prep Time



Total Time




8 to 10


box Betty Crocker® pound cake mix
cup water
cup butter, softened
Grated peel of 1 orange
can Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy milk chocolate or vanilla frosting
cup pretzels and/or large marshmallows
cup fresh orange sections and/or strawberries
Assorted candy sprinkles, chopped nuts, colored sugars, as desired
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Generously grease 9x5-inch loaf pan with shortening; lightly flour.
  2. In medium bowl, beat cake mix, water, butter, eggs and orange peel on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 3 minutes (or beat 4 minutes by hand). Pour into pan.
  3. Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until firm to the touch. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on cooling rack.
  4. Cut top of cake to even out, and divide cake horizontally into 3 long slices. Using a cookie cutter, cut shapes out of loaf cake. To make fondue, place frosting in a ramekin, and microwave uncovered 30 seconds to 1 minute or until melted.
  5. Place cake cutouts and remaining ingredients in small ramekins or containers on a platter around the fondue. Surround with napkins, wooden skewers for dipping and small plates.

Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Pour cake batter into mini muffin tins in place of cutting out shapes, and skewer each mini cupcake. This will yield 3 dozen mini cupcakes.
Cutting out shapes from cake will make 12 to 14, depending on the size of your cookie cutter.
