Delicious, with a good strong orange flavor! I added 1 teaspoon lemon extract to the cake batter, and used 1/4 cup butter plus 1/4 cup veg oil. Frosted it with a basic buttercream substituting OJ instead of the usual milk called for, cream cheese for half of the butter, and added more orange zest which gave pretty flecks throughout the frosting. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because my cake came out a little crumbly/dry...this may have been my fault though as I slightly overbaked it. Overall everyone loved it & I'll make it again for sure!
