Make, bake and cool cake as directed on box for two 8-inch or 9-inch round pans--except use 1 1/4 cups of orange juice mixture in place of the water and add 1 1/2 teaspoons orange peel along with egg whites. Chill completely cooled layers 45 minutes before cutting.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

To split cake rounds evenly, mark side of cake with toothpicks and cut with a long, thin knife.

Garnish with strips of lemon and orange peel curled together, or for a last-minute garnish, use small wedges of lemon and orange.

Add a fragrant mound of yellow and orange rose petals to the top of the cake for an elegant extra-special cake.
