      I made this out of the magazine for my daughter's October birthday. This was GORGEOUS and tasted FABULOUS. I made it in three 8" layers. There was plenty of frosting to put 1/2 cup between each layer. It was difficult to get a rich orange color in the icing. I used many times the food coloring it called for, and my frosting was still an earthier orange than the picture. But ohh was this good. Thanks for posting Sherri L.
