Grand Marnier

I'm thinking of making a cake that calls for soaking the layers in a
syrup made with Grand Marnier and orange juice. I don't have Grand
Marnier. Would Orange Curacao be an acceptable substitute?

Sure. I'd even use triple sec in a pinch, or even just the orange juice. You're just trying for a nice concentrated orange flavor, and Grand Marnier is the best source. I bet it would be hard to tell the difference between the Grand Marnier and any substitute in the final product.

Personally, if I were you, I might substitute Sabra Liqueur - also orange but with additional chocolate flavor.
If you're worried that there won't be enough orange flavor, make the juice from concentrate and use double (or more) of the concentrate to the amount of liquid you need.
