LORRAINEF the amount of butter is correct. I just made this at Halloween and it turned out great! Because it was halloween I added orange food coloring paste to really give it all a very orange color not just orange flavor. Everyone loved it. It's a great cake!

question or comment
could someone verify the amount of butter listed in the buttercream icing? 6 tbsps to 4 1/2 cups icing sugar? also, can an orange soda be used in place of oj for a more dreamsicle taste? thanks:)
