We tried to save room for a big slice of this pretty cake. The flavor of orange and lemon really comes through. With a heavenly whipped cream frosting, this cake is a delightful end to a terrific meal. -Willa Govoro, St. Clair, Missouri

"Good recipe, makes a small-sized cake with an appealing blend of flavors. The original recipe from the magazine calls for 8-inch layer pans, (not 9-inch), which probably makes a difference. I was careful not to overbake it. Will definitely make this again."

"I made this cake this wkd and I followed all the instruccions, on the top I put Lemon curd instead of this creamy top. The cake is dry when u eat it. Is not big enough to cut it in the middle to put this creamy top! instead of that I have a hole in the middle. I couldnt cut it. The cake is dry but the taste is good but I´m not going to make it again. If u dream with this cake better do another."

"this cake is awesome. Moist and full of flavor. I used a lemon frosting and garnished with orange peel and it was great. I also used a little less sugar than stated. Highly recommended"
