      This was excellent. I also used part skim ricotta but I used full fat creat cheese and cool whip. It was a very rich dessert so next time I'll try fat-free or low fat ingredients. The orange zest gave this a very orangey flavour which was great and it tasted as though I'd used orange chocolate. Next time, I'll also make this in a smaller pan so that the cake can be thicker with more layers. I'll be making this again for sure as it was very easy to make and I was able to make it ahead of time (the day before my party). Thanks.
