  2. To prepare cake, combine sugar and butter; cream with a mixer at medium-high speed. Add eggs and orange zest; blend well.
  3. Reduce speed to low and beat in orange juice. Add flour alternately with milk; beat well. Pour into pans.
  4. Bake 22 to 25 minutes, until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 15 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely on wire racks.
  5. To prepare icing, combine butter, orange zest, orange juice, and half the confectioners’ sugar. Using a mixer at low speed, beat until well blended. Gradually add remaining sugar; beat until smooth.
  6. Spread about ¾ cup of the icing on top of one layer. Place second layer on top. Spread remaining icing in a thin layer over top and sides.
