  • 3 Bake and cool as directed on box for 8- or 9-inch rounds.

Spread whipped cream mixture over side and top of cake. Garnish top of cake with strips of lemon and orange peel. Store covered in refrigerator.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Instead of using pie filling, try lemon, lime or orange curd. Look for 10-oz jars of it near the jams and jellies at your supermarket.

For a refreshing lemon-lime version, omit the orange juice, increase water to 1 cup and stir 1 teaspoon grated lime peel into the batter.
