1-2-3-4 cake filling and topping

Yield: 1 Cake

Measure Ingredient
¾ cup Orange juice; strained
2 tablespoons Lemon juice
¾ cup Sugar; granulated
1 tablespoon Orange rind; finely grated


Makes: Icing and filling for one cake. SEE: Cake, 1-2-3-4 Cake by James Beard for the cake recipe.

: Mix the orange juice, lemon juice, sugar and orange rind together and drizzle the mixture over the three still warm cake layers. Be careful not to let it all soak into one spot.

: Then pile the layers on top of each other. The juice mixture will give the cake a lovely, fresh, fruity flavor and it is not rich like a chocolate or other candy flavored icing. Leave the cake to cool.
