  1. I want one of these to eat, but I have none of that in the house. Well, maybe butter. It looks and sounds delicious!

  2. Is that orange juice 'concentrate'?????????

  3. Either pure orange juice or orange juice made from concentrate.

  4. Did you use green food colouring for the second layer?

  5. Can i make this without cream cheese? i really hate cream cheese

    1. I haven't made it without cream cheese, maybe you could use whipped cream instead. If you try it please let us now how it turns out.

    2. Another idea..maybe use ricotta cheese?

  6. This was a delicious dessert - will make it again!
