Directions

Heat oven 350 degrees. You'll need two 9x2-in. round cake pans coated with nonstick spray. Beat cake mix, buttermilk, oil, eggs and liqueur in a large bowl with mixer on low speed 30 seconds or until blended. Scrape down sides of bowl beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pans.

Bake 28-32 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in centers of cakes comes out clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack 10 minutes, invert on rack, turn right side up and cool completely.

To make frosting, beat butter in a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed until creamy. Beat in marshmallow cream. When well blended, beat in confectioners' sugar, vanilla, orange zest and juice. Increase speed to high and beat 3-4 minutes until fluffy makes 5 C.

Place 1 cake layer on a serving plate. Spread with 1 C. frosting. Top with remaining cake layer. Spread top and sides with remaining frosting. Decorate with cut orange slices.
