    I want to make an Orange Fanta Cake but I have two questions I can find ZERO answers to! Thank you in advance to anyone who helps me. My boyfriend is German and this is his favorite cake and I need to nail this and impress him with my skills!

    1. I want to use a white cake recipe. I am very against using cake mix- I want to make the cake from scratch myself. I thought using a white cake may give the soda a chance to tint it orange but if not then the bright white will look dope with the orange tinted frosting and mandarin oranges. that's the link to the cake. So my question: Do I just add in the same amount of soda that recipes that use boxed mix call for OR do I need to substitute the soda for the eggs and liquids? The recipe calls for beaten egg whites which is why I'm stuck. Is there a better recipe for the cake I should use?

    2. What kind of frosting should I do and how could I flavor it with the orange soda as well? Any suggestions here?

    You can't go adding soda to it.

    hi ratio white cake is simpler .

    Can't help with the frosting sorry.
