Looking for Mandarin Orange Cake recipe

My sister's late MIL used to make a wonderful melt-in-your-mouth Mandarin Orange Cake.
I was wondering if anyone had a good recipe for this type of cake. We have a family reunion coming up and this would be a great dessert to take.
Thanks in advance for any help.

the recipe I found is pretty much the same as Dina's. Mine says to drain the pineapple for the frosting and use an entire tub of Cool Whip.
