So yummy! Give it a shot, you wont regret it. I added a bit of orange flavor like the other review suggested, as well as to the icing.

I made it for a coworkers bday and everyone loved it!

Most and tasty -- I would include more orange flavoring possibly 1/2 orange extract and 1/2 vanilla. Well received by guests.
