That is a Dreamscycle..Cake I may add...

The cake:

1 1/3 cups sugar
2/3 cup fresh orange juice
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
2 eggs
2 cups cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add juices and peel; mix well (mixture may appear curdled). Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift flour with baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Pour into two greased and floured 8-inch springform  pans. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool in pan 10 minutes.  Poke holes in cake with a meat fork.  Pour jell-o over cakes.  Refrigerate for about 2 hours.  Then remove from pan..

The Jell-o:
Make a small box of Orange Jell-o according to directions.

The filling:
1/3 cup powdered sugar

1/4 cup whipping cream
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest

Combine all ingredients in medium bowl. Beat at medium speed until fluffy.  Spread between the  layer of cake.

The frosting:
1 cup whipping cream

1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate, thawed

Whip on high speed until firm.  Spread over cake and sides. 
Refrigerate cake at least 1 hour.  Store cake in refrigerator..

This cake reminds me of the hot summers at my grandma's when she would give out dreamsycle bars or fudge bars.
