This is an excellent cake with wonderful flavor. I couldn't stop eating it! Be sure to refrigerate before serving, as it's best when it's cold.
I made this cake for a birthday at work yesterday. Yum, everyone liked it, thought it was light and not too sweet. I made it by the recipe except I only bought 1 package of jello so the frosting was vanilla cream-and I only used a half cup of milk. I thought the orange cake and vanilla frosting were a perfect contrast. I would do the same the next time, just a personal preference.
