Cool and Refreshing Orange Cake

This cake is wonderful. Cool and refreshing like the orange cream frozen treat. Great for picnics, travels well. A true taste of summer but perfect for year around. My whole family loved it. Very light and moist. Not too sweet but just right. Can be adapted to many different flavors. Will be making this all summer long. It was gone in one day!
