For the crust

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg

For the filling

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch salt
  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • orange food coloring
  • whipped cream (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a 13×9 pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Mix cake mix, butter and egg in a medium bowl.
  4. Press crust into bottom of pan.
  5. In a separate bowl with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, butter, and eggs until batter is mixed well.
  6. Add vanilla, salt and powdered sugar into filling.
  7. Color the batter orange. I accomplished the color shown by using Wilton Rose Pink and Sunny Yellow gel colors.
  8. Pour into prepared pan on top of crust.
  9. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, until mostly set (center will still be a bit “wiggly”).
  10. Let cool completely. Store in refrigerator.
