Instead of using orange extract, I usually use a few drops of orange flavored drink mixes (like the MIO things to put in your bottle of water) It gives the topping a nice color and I like the flavor better. You can also do this recipe using a strawberry cake mix with strawberry flavoring for the topping. I have also used those drink pouches that you pour into a bottle of water for the flavoring for the topping. Either cake is ALWAYS a hit wherever I take it! :D
