Yum, yum, yum!!! Oh what a tragedy~! I was toying with the idea of making my own wedding cake...so I had my eye on this recipe. This cake is easy and delish, but wow...it completely FELL in the oven, looked like 2 giant craters in the cake pans when I looked in the oven. I figured that was fixable...well, they wouldn't come OUT of the pan! I'm not a professional baker, don't own any parchment and don't trust my oven not to start a fire....so when I turned the pans over, the 2 halves went to heck in a handbasket. Also...use regular baking vanilla. I tried the cake...delicious, spongy...not even close to what i was looking for...yet wonderful. It tastes like an orange creamsicle if you use that extract. I'm going to buy some vanilla pudding and salvage the wreck of a cake into a layered torte with madarin oranges and flaked coconut for my friend's birthday (the reason I was test-running the recipe). I say hire a regular baker unless you've got some wonder-oven, or are making cupcakes...or you don't care about presentation and can spoon some cake-ruin onto each guest's plate.
