Mix cake according to directions on box. Add 1/2 teaspoon orange extract if you do not want to use alcohol in cake.

Meanwhile prepare the frostings for the filling and the outside. Zest and juice the orange. Put 3 cups of powdered sugar and 4 tablespoons soft butter plus 1 teaspoon orange zest in a mixing bowl. Add 2 tablespoons orange juice and blend with a mixer on medium speed. Add more orange juice as needed to make a soft frosting. Set aside.
Melt 3 ounces baking chocolate. Put 5 cups powdered sugar and 6 tablespoons softened butter in a mixing bowl. With beaters going drizzle in melted chocolate and two tablespoons milk or cream, beating well. Gradually beat in more milk until frosting is of the right consistency for easy spreading.
To assemble cake- cut each layer in half. Place one layer on large round plate. Sprinkle wth a tablespoon of orange liqueur if you want a boozy cake. Frost top of layer with 1/3rd of the orange buttercream. Repeat with two more layers of cake. Top with the last layer of cake. Frost outer surface of cake with the chocolate buttercream. Decorate as you wish!
