  1. Combine the kesar shrikhand, orange squash and cardamom powder in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Add the beaten whipped cream and orange segments and fold gently. Keep aside.
  3. Slice the vanilla sponge cake horizontally into 2 equal layers. We would need only the lower layer of the cake.
  4. Place the bottom layer of the vanilla sponge cake on a turntable or serving plate and sprinkle the soaking syrup evenly over it. Keep aside.
  5. Spread the shrikhand-whipped cream mixture evenly over it.
  6. Garnish with swirls of beaten whipped cream and orange segments and refrigerate for 1 hour or till it sets.
  7. Cut the cake into 6 equal wedges and serve chilled.
