    I have not made this yet. Everybody keeps talking about the frosting being tart and the recipe calling for concentrated oj but the recipe I see calls for the juice and peel of 1 navel orange. Which is it? I will work on a frosting recipe.

    The problem with this recipe is the icing. Whether you start with cream cheese flavored icing or not I recommend completely omitting the oj concentrate from the recipe. Instead I suggest experimenting with pure orange extract and orange zest to achieve the best results.

    I altered the frosting by using a can of cream cheese flavored icing, the oj concentrate and a little bit of vanilla extract. The icing and cake tasted really good, but the icing was runny and didn't turn out too great looking. The idea of omiting the oil for the whipped topping was genius...it turned out really nice with a very foamy texture.
