Orange Chiffon Cake

I didn't have a chance to take better photographs as these 'orange columns' were gone literally minutes after I've sliced them. Yes, they tasted really good, even though they didn't appear very enticing.

I think the orange gave the chiffon cake a really refreshing lift and it was such a light and fluffy cake. Makes a terrific afternoon snack anytime!
