    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a good filling to use between layer cakes, and is prepared using basically the same method as a lemon pie filling. There should be enough mixture to fill two layers. Prep time includes chilling time.

      I added a couple of tablespoons of Grand Marnier and used this as a filling between chocolate cake layers and it was delicious! But it is excellent as is and easy to make. But I couldn't find in the recipe when to put the orange zest in. I added it in step 2.
