What a nice and so haunting cake it is. http://cake-delivery.in/kota
I made this cake for a Halloween party this past Saturday and it was a great hit!! I baked it in 3 8-inch pans and doubled the frosting recipe so I would have enough to put a border around the bottom and the top, I made a mound of frosting on the top, put a pile of candy corn on and around and drizzled the ganache over the candy corn! It was a beautiful cake!
I made this cake yesterday for a Sunday School treat. I read other reviews that stated that it was dry so I was very careful with the baking time. I baked the layers for 19 minutes instead of the 30 called for in the recipe and checked the doneness with a toothpick so as not to over bake. It was EXTREMELY dry. As a matter of fact I threw the uneaten cake in the trash. And there was a lot uneaten! It was a very cute cake and had good orange flavor but I wouldn't spend time making it again.
This recipe didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. The cake layers are a bit dense, almost like pound cake consistency. I didn't have any problems with the thickness of the frosting, as others have had, but it's very, very sweet. And the chocolate glaze didn't turn out well either, it was smooth as first but as it cooled, it almost looked like it curdled so when I poured over the top of the cake, it just sat there. I had to use a spatula to get it to run down the sides. I do like the subtle orange flavor of the two layers, and mixed with the frosting, it tastes like candy corn or an orange creamsicle. I like the idea of the cake but I think next time, I will use my own recipes for the cakes and frosting and just add the colors.
Would not make. Almost 6 cups of sugar. So who needs that for your health plus all the cream chees? Crazy to have that much sugar in one cake.
this so good you will see all guest say . give the recipe
It's okay but the cake is pretty dry. I used a cream cheese frosting recipe that uses butter and it was delicious. This makes a pretty cake but there are better cake recipes out there. Will not make again.
Pretty standard orange chocolate cake. It turned out a little dry, but that might just be me :(
