OK, I made the cake and the caramel orange sauce. HOLY WOW!! I highly recommend this to y'all. There isn't a scrap left. I was hoping for a little piece for breakfast today, but no dice, my guests hoovered it all. Thanks mish and PA for the wonderful ideas.

I have another get together tonight (my last for the season thank God!!) and I may have to try the cake again. If I do I will try the regular orange sauce and compare notes later.

I can't wait to hear your comparison of the two sauces, Alix. And this time, save me a piece, OK?!?

OK... another hit. Man that cake is easy. The sauce was a bit fiddlier to make, but it was SPLENDID! I personally liked it better...more zip. But the kids and my hubby liked the caramel one better. So...one vote regular orange sauce, three for the caramel one. And lets see...12 votes of YUM on the cake!!

Alix, another thought, since you mentioned we can buy the chocolate cups, perhaps, I could try filling the cups with ready made nog or orange liquer, etc., whipped cream, a strawberry etc., cinnamin, etc., or PA's sauces, pop em in the freezer & voila instant dessert.

I vote orange licquer (sp?) in whipped cream. Mmmmmmmmm. Cool thought! I usually do what we call Pink Dessert in them. Raspberry jello made with the boiling water, but then grapefruit juice instead of cold water. When half set fold in whipped cream and toss in the chocolate cups. Easy and pretty too.
