Orange Cake
Fresh fresh fresh!! This cake is not only extremely easy to make, but tastes out of this world. I have made this cake with the heated butter glaze listed in the recipe's detail and I have also made it as a three layer round cake with an orange cream cheese frosting. It was the hit of the party and not a drop was left! The orange cream cheese frosting is as follows: 8 ounces of cream cheese softened, 1/2 cup of unsalted butter softened, 1 tablespoon of fresh orange juice, 1/2 teaspoon of lemon extract, 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract, 4 cups of confectioners sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of orange food coloring (optional). Blend the cream cheese and butter in a large bowl using an electric mixer set at medium speed, until smooth. Turn the mixer down to low and slowly add the orange juice, lemon extract, and vanilla and mix until well incorporated. Add the sugar and continue to beat until light and creamy -- about 3 more minutes. Add the food coloring (optional) and gently mix until the color is uniform. Frost already cooled (I prefer actually chilled) cakes. This frosting compliments the cake beautifully and it is sure to keep them coming back for more. Enjoy!
