This cake was pretty good, although not what I was looking for. I made it a 3 layer cake-- I did 1 1/2 times the amount of crunch layer and used David's Yellow Cake Recipe for the cake. I froze the layers the day before and frosted the cake frozen. I left the crunch layers facing down and had no problems with this or with the cake layer cracking as other reviewers mentioned. The cake did have a nice "light" taste to it. I used a cream cheese frosting recipe from this site as well and the frosting was good, although the orange peel was kind of chewy. Overall the cake was good but just seemed to be lacking something. I might make it again but as a vanilla cake with cream cheese frosting and maybe a raspberry sauce or something like that.
The crunch layer was the best part of the cake. But it was for my birthday and just didn't have that "wow" factor.
