"The first time we made this it is was for Mothers Day. I needed a recipe that was easy enough for my grown kids to make for me. It turned out wonderful. I had them double the recipe so that we could put it in a spring form pan and they decorated the top with mandarin oranges. It was delicious and looked beautiful. This is now a family favorite my Mom requested that it be made for her birthday this coming week. Thank you for the quick, easy delicious recipe!!"
