DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350. Butter two 8 inch round cake pans and line the bottoms with parchment paper or waxed paper and set aside.
  • For the cake, in a large bowl, stir together the package directions, using the eggs and oil and water. Stir in the zest . Pour the batter evenly into the prepared pans. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and toothpick inserted in the centers of the cakes comes out clean.
  • Let the cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Carefully turn cakes out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • For the frosting, beat together the confectioners sugar and butter until fluffy. Beat in the remaining frosting ingredients until combined. I added a few drops of pink food coloring.
  • Transfer one cake to a cake stand or large plate. Using an offset spatula, spread the top of the cake mix with a layer of frosting. Place the second cake on top of the first. Spread the remaining frosting over the top and sides of both layers.
  • I put mine in the refrigerator to stay chilled.
