Recipe Tips

- To make ahead, prepare cake as directed above. Cool completely; cut into wedges. Wrap individual wedges in plastic food wrap; place in freezer bag. Freeze until needed. Let thaw 30 minutes at room temperature. Prepare Orange Cream as directed above.

- Top each serving with sweetened whipped cream. Beat 1/2 cup whipping cream in small bowl at high speed, scraping bowl often, until stiff peaks form. Beat in 2 teaspoons powdered sugar. Dollop whipped cream onto each serving. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon.

- Another serving suggestion is to top each wedge of cake with scoop of vanilla ice cream. Drizzle ice cream with a small amount of honey or caramel sauce.

This cake was easy and although I usually follow Land O Lakes recipes exactly I didn't this time. I made the mistake of using the eggs whole, used a 9 x 9 pan and baked at 350 degrees which shortened the baking time more than 10 minutes. But it came out delicious anyway. Next time I will try to follow the instructions and know it will also be yummy.
