    turtlebug's Note:

    My aunt has made this cake for years. It is now one of our favorites. Sometimes I make it in one 9 by 13 pan - baking about 32 minutes in oven.

      This is a different kind of cake. Quite good but the cake is a little dense - can't really taste the oranges either. The frosting was a really pretty colour & very good!!

      Made this cake last night. I omitted the coconut. My husband loved this cake! This cake is very light and moist.This tasted very similiar to another kind of cake I make with just plain vanilla pudding in the frosting. Thanks for the recipe.

      This is probably the moistest cake that I've ever eaten. Everything about this cake was phenomenal. All the flavors melded so well together, and the textures were great. I didn't have a yellow cake mix, so I used a Vanilla White Cake Mix. And I put slivered almonds around the side of the cake. Very Very Very good. Thanks for the fantastic recipe!
