Should there be a change if cooking at altitude. They came out sticky and gooey. Good taste, just not cake like at all. Help!

Absolutely love this recipe!! I made the orange the first, loved them, and lemon the next, turned out great as well. I'm curious to see how lime works out, may have to try it next!

OK> Made these, followed the directions exactly. They raised about a 4th of the picture. I wonder about the absence of baking powder or soda. Anyone else have a problem?

Just watched the show and wrote down the exact frosting (not glaze) recipe as Paula did it: one 16 oz box powdered sugar; 2 tbls orange juice; 2 tbls grated orange zest; 1 small cream cheese; 1/2 stick soft butter; I bake for a group of underprividledged kids at my church and want to make these for them. I love everything I try that Paula makes. Just can't eat it or I'd weight 300 lbs.! Thanks!!

First time trying this recipe after seeing it on Paula's show. Baked it for my husband, some of his family and myself. It turned out amazing, great flavors and just the right amount of citrus flavors! (Also great with a glass of Orange juice!) Would recommend!

We sampled these last evening at a concert at West Point shared by the generous Mom of a new cadet. They are amazing and she was nice enough to tell us where to get the recipe, so I plan to make them, too! I cannot believe it looks so easy. Thanks Stacy and thanks Paula for this great new dessert!!
