    Looking for a recipe

    Hello, I hope you can help me. I am looking for a recipe that was pictured on the cover of either Family Circle or Women's Day magazine about 25 years ago. It was a sponge cake with ground walnuts, baked in a jelly roll pan and then cut in four and layered. There was orange juice brushed on the cake before layering it with whipped cream, then it was frosted with whip cream and walnut pieces were pressed on the sides of the cake. This was in my recipe folder for years and has now disappeared. My mother and mother-in-law both really loved it and I would like to surprise them with it again. It was a very light cake. I want to say it was called something like Luscious Orange Layer Cake.

    Does anyone remember this recipe and would you share it? Please.

    I looked at both Family Circle and Woman's Day but nothing came up like you were looking for. This is one I found.

    I have made a similar cake but used Sara Lee large frozen pound cake.
    I brush the layesr with orange juice or Orange Liqeur like Tripple Sec. I have also found that using Cool Whip instead of heavy cream not only cuts calories, but it holds up better and longer.
