Cahing a Table Adapter

I am trying to cache a table adapter.... I've done something similar with a string, so I know I'm on the right track, but I'm just not getting the OOP of how to assign it.

I looked here, but it isn't using a tableadapter:
http://www.ondotnet.com/pub/a/dotnet/2002/12/30/cachingaspnet.html

The error I'm getting occurs the second time I hit the code AFTER it's been assigned:
Exception Details: System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast object of type 'FeaturesDataTable' to type 'System.Data.DataSet'.
Line 102:        Dim DataGridCache As DataSet = CType(Cache.Get("DataGridCache"), DataSet)

The problem is somewhere here, I'm not assigning it a Dataset. And if I need to make it something else, I don't know what I need to make it:
Cache.Insert("DataGridCache", GridView1.DataSource, Nothing, _
                    DateTime.Now.AddSeconds(60), TimeSpan.Zero)

Someone else could probably look at this and see it in a second.

Protected Sub GetFeatureCache()
        'Programmatic Caching Setup
        Dim DataGridCache As DataSet = CType(Cache.Get("DataGridCache"), DataSet)
 
        'Check if Cache item is equal to Nothing
        If DataGridCache Is Nothing Then
            Dim IAdapter2 As New IDataSetTableAdapters.FeaturesTableAdapter()
            Dim features As IDataSet.FeaturesDataTable
            features = IAdapter2.GetFeatures
            GridView1.DataSource = features
            'insert ito cache, expire in 1 day
            Cache.Insert("DataGridCache", GridView1.DataSource, Nothing, _
                    DateTime.Now.AddSeconds(60), TimeSpan.Zero)
        Else
            GridView1.DataSource = DataGridCache
        End If

But you are assigning it as a dataset in line 3...try:

        Dim DataGridCache As DataTable = CType(Cache.Get("DataGridCache"), DataTable)
or even:
        Dim DataGridCache As IDataSet.FeaturesDataTable = CType(Cache.Get("DataGridCache"), IDataSet.FeaturesDataTable)
 

might also need:
Cache.Insert("DataGridCache", features, Nothing, _
                    DateTime.Now.AddSeconds(60), TimeSpan.Zero)
