“This is a great moist cake with a delicious orange taste. it's another one I got from the local paper. Made a great hit at Christmas. Sorry about the problems some had. I hadn't made this for awhile & didn't remember any problems. I made it again & the solution is do not thaw the cool whip. I used almost 12 oz. & just cut it into the other ingredients. It stayed together enough to frost & get in the fridge. I will change the amount. I thought I had put 8 or more. I think 12 oz would be much better.”
