      here's an elaboration on the orange curd: 1 cup sugar 1/4 cup cornstarch 2 cups FRESH orange juice (about 4 pounds navel oranges) 3 large eggs, lightly beaten 1/4 cup butter 1 tablespoon grated orange rind Combine sugar and cornstarch in a 3-quart saucepan; gradually whisk in fresh orange juice. Whisk in lightly beaten eggs. Bring to a boil (5 to 6 minutes) over medium heat, whisking constantly. Cook, whisking constantly, 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture reaches a pudding-like thickness. Remove from heat, and whisk in butter and grated orange rind. Cover, placing plastic wrap directly on curd, and chill 8 hours. **I tried piping my own detail onto the side of the cake but it was not sticking so I ended up just peeling the side off. The toasty edge still looked great. This was a hit over the holidays! It's slightly rich, but a definite pleaser.
