I'm not any sort of baker. Once every few years or so I try to make a great cake for my wife's birthday. This year I made this recipe because I wanted to try something we've never had. The recipe was super easy and very delicious.
As someone else suggested I only used half of the vanilla and replaced it with orange extract. Also I didn't want to use a bundt pan for a birthday cake so I used two 9" round pans. Baked perfectly at 375 for 30 minutes.
For the icing I used 1 tub (16 oz) of whipped topping mixed with 8 oz of sour cream, 3/4 tsp of orange extract, and 2 cups of confectioners sugar. Then topped with some candied orange slices. Turned out really well although if I ever make it again I might try a chocolate based frosting for contrasting flavors. Either way you can't go wrong.
