I went ahead and made this cake without reading the reviews, but I did pay special attention to the DO NOT overmix instructions and (after I had read the reviews) the baking time, which I shortened by 10 minutes. Substitutions I made to the recipe were the following: Duck eggs instead of chicken eggs, and 2/3 cup of mayonnaise, rather than sour cream. When finished, I glazed the underside of the cake with a mixture of confectioner's sugar, orange juice and vanilla. I then plated and turned the cake over, and drizzled on a chocolate ganache. Finished with some orange slices, that I slightly poached in Southern Comfort, I think this cake is going to be a HUGE success.
