Mandarin orange cake

My family's favorite treat and so easy to make, Mandarin orange cake. I got this recipe from my 5 ingredient or less cookbook.

1 box yellow cake mix
4 eggs
2 small cans mandarin oranges with juice

1 tub of cool whip
1 can crushed pineapple
1 box instant vanilla pudding

Mix cake mix, eggs and mandarin oranges with juice, Mix with mixer so oranges get chopped up. Grease cake pan, Add cake mix, bake 350 for 30 minutes or until done. Cool cake.
For frosting, Mix cool whip pineapple with juice and vanilla pudding, mix well, set aside to set up.
When cake is cool, top with topping, This cake is good without putting in the fridge, But it is super best when refrigerated for a few hours. This cake is so moist. MMMM good, I need a piece if they left me any!!!!
