TO MAKE ORANGE CREAM: In a medium bowl, fold together the yogurt cheese, orange juice concentrate, honey and orange rind. Chill.

TO MAKE THE CAKE: Sift the unbleached flour and pastry flour together.

Return the flour to the sifte. In a 5-6 puart bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until bubbly. Add the orange extract and cream of tartar. Beat on medium speed until the whites form soft peaks. Gradually beat in the honey until the whites are stiff. Sift about ¼ cup of the flour over the whites. Carefully fold it in with a large spatula. Repeat until all the flour has been incorporated.

Spoon batter into an ungreased 9-10 inch ungreased tube pan with removable bottom. Level top with a spatula. Bake at 325 F for about 40-50 minutes, or until the top is golden and springs back when lightly touched. Invert the pan onto a wire rack and let the cake cool for 1 hour. To remove the cake from the pan, run a thin knife around the outside edges. Remove the outer portion of the pan. Run a thin knife around the center tube and also around the center tube and also around the bottom of the cake. Invert the cake onto a serving plate. Serve with the orange sections and orange cream. (If desired, place the cream in a pastry bag fitted with a star tip and pipe it decoratively around or onto each slice.) ***NOTE*** To make the yogurt cheese, spoon about 4 cups of nonfat yogurt into a sieve lined with a triple thickness of cheese cloth.

Place over a bowl, cover and refrigerate for 4 hours, or until very thick.
