Wow! This cake was so good! I must admit that I tried it mainly because I LOVE anything to do with Anne of Green Gables and/or P.E.I.! Since I used it for an Easter cake, I didn't make the glaze, but instead made a fluffy frosting with instant sugar-free vanilla pudding and lite cool whip. I then added some grated orange peel to the frosting and decorated it with mandarine orange slices. It was beautiful and so delicious! I think next time I may add a little orange color to the batter or frosting or both! Thanks Marg for this great cake.
