This morning, I read a post from my dear friends Jim and Ravyn taking about tea over at their blog, and it reminded me how much I like the Tazo Wild Sweet Orange tea we have. I made a cup of it, and quickly noticed how most of the things I’m working with this morning have orange in them.

I’m not saying you care, I’m only suggesting that I like it. So there.

Something that you might like though? Delicious Sugar Cream Cake! Oooo- it’s so sugary, crispy, creamy and easy to make.

It’s like sugar cream pie, but with a cake on the bottom instead of a crust, and it gets better the longer it sits (at least in my opinion).

Sugar Cream Cake


  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 egg

Mix these together and put in a greased 9″ x 13″ cake pan. It will be a very stiff dough,ย so don’t expect cake batter!


  • 4 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 8 oz. cream cheese

Mix and pour over the cake. Sprinkle the top with nutmeg, and bake it at 350ยบ for 30-40ย minutes, or until the edges are crisp and brown. Let it cool (it will be hard to resist) and enjoy!

I feel that I should maybe warn you that you’ll be on a CRAZY sugar high. Plan on eating this when you have 4 loads of laundry to do and a house to clean, because you will have SO MUCH ENERGY!

    Chris devoured it…I didn’t even get any!!

    • That’s terrible, Caitlin! I’ll remember that next time, and only bring some over for you!

    I think you should put your “warning” section of this post in RED ALL CAPS. It is not your average sugar high. Or you could call it “sugar crack cake.”

    • Eh- I’ll be more fun to look at everyone’s sewing projects AFTER they’ve eaten it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Will this fit into my diet plan? Probably not, but I like to break the rules when it comes to sugar!! :o) Thanks for the shout … as soon as I’m done with the BOXES (yes, I’m a tea horder) of Passion tea I bought, I am going to get me some of the orange. PS, PLEASE Google ‘Marcel the shell’. It will change your life!!

    • Oh Ravyn- I completely approve of you eating it while dieting. Mostly because I don’t think you need to diet, and I want to watch you go crazy after eating it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    What’s up, baking diva?! You’ve been holding out on me! Why do I never get any cake??

    • Next time, I promise! ๐Ÿ™‚
