      Was intending to make this for a nice dessert right here at home, but my other half persuaded me to let most of it go to work with him to share! Pretty much followed the recipe, but did feel obligated to substitute orange flavoring for the Grand Marnier! Still, IT IS AN OUTSTANDING CAKE, & I'm happy to keep the recipe around to make again!
