      Oh man, I am in love. I don't know what the mandarin oranges would've done for this cake because I didn't have any, and I also used whipped cream instead of frosting because I hate frosting, but everything else was by the book, and it was absolutely spectacular. My husband will be hounding me every Sunday for the next six months to make this again.
