    This was a good cake and so wonderfully easy to do. The cake mixes here in Australia are a different weight so I do have to jiggle and judge the amounts of the other ingredients. I did not frost with a canned frosting as they are very expensive to purchase here but served it with big strawberries and recipe #311465 - so yummy !

    Made for Gimme 5 Tag. Super easy and moist. I used 2 cans of icing. I loved the addition of orange zest.

    Good cake; very moist. The frosting turned out to be waaay too sweet for me & DH, but DS really liked it, so I kept the layers seperate and frosted just the one (I tried a little piece of the frosted one, and it was better on the cake but I still couldn't eat a real piece of it). I'd make the cake this way again but with a homemade frosting so I can control the sugar. Thanks.

    I really like this cake. It is moist and the "hint" of orange is great. I used 2 cans of frosting. I added one teaspoon of orange zest to the cake mix and 1 teaspoon to the frosting. I will definitely be making this again.

    Great cake recipe! I increased the orange zest to 1 tablespoon, and also added in some mini chocolate chipes to the cake batter, great recipe Baby K, thanks for sharing!...Kitten:)
