Like I said before, I crave sweets! I was going to make this as a lemon cake, but since I had a couple of oranges at home, I decided that would be easier than going to the store to buy lemons.

Nate got jokingly mad at me yesterday because this was so good that he ate so much of it. I have to say, it was REALLY good. I kept picking pieces of it off throughout the night, it was so good, I just couldn't stop myself from eating it. We only have about 1/3 of the cake left maybe less, because we ate so much. Nate kept saying "because its fruity, it feels like it should be healthy." I don't think its healthy, but it can't be THAT bad for you either.

Anyway, I'll definitely be making this again sometime. Maybe not for a while, because Nate will get mad at me. I promised him I wouldn't make another dessert for a week, though we still have some of this left, and oreo cookie balls in the fridge and freezer.
