Prepare the Cake

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease three nine-inch pans. Sprinkle with flour, shake off excess.
2. Beat egg whites until stiff. Add sugar and continue beating until peaks form.
3. Slowly add yolks and remaining ingredients. Divide among pans.
4. Bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool.

Prepare the Pudding

1. Beat one carton whip cream until peaks form.
2. In a three-quart saucepan, over low heat, combine eggs, juice, and confectioners’ sugar. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture curdles. Pour into food processor.
3. Blend while hot, adding beaten whip cream and pudding. Blend until smooth and creamy.
4. Beat second whip cream and set aside.

To Assemble

1. Spread pudding onto two cake layers and stack. Place third cake on top. Spread whip cream over entire cake.
2. Pour remaining pudding on top of cake, allowing to drip down the sides. (If pudding has set, blend again).
