Unexpected company! Dessert emergency! Used frozen poundcake. Had leftover candied fruit from Xmas. No orange liqueur so used bourbon. Was delightful, anyhow. Wows all around and this one is a keeper. Next time, I will do it with homemade poundcake, the right way....it can only get better!

I made this recipe for the second time tonight. The first time I couldn't find candied fruit (wrong time of year) so I used dried fruit that I had soaked in Triple Sec. YUM. Even people who didn't like coffee, liked the cake! This time I used the same dried fruit but soaked it in vanilla and water. For this second time I had to use imitation orange flavoring instead of Triple Sec since I was making it for a group of people who couldn't have alcohol in the cake mix. Rave reviews!

Lovely flavors, the icing is especially good. I am not a fan of candied fruit so I used orange zest that had been microwaved with a tiny bit of confectioners sugar and orange juice (2 tsp zest, 1/2 tsp sugar 1 tsp juice). Many rave reviews from those served.
