A spicy holiday treat

Posted: December 22nd, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized

Oranges at Christmastime always remind me of being a child, and finding a beautiful, fresh orange in the toe of my stocking on the morning of “Saint Nick” Day, so I think oranges are only fitting for holiday desserts. I made this particular cake for a dinner with friends last week, and I thought it would make the perfect dessert for a holiday party. I got the recipe from Martha Stewart (her recipes never disappoint!), but I used two 9″ cake pans instead of three 6″ pans. I did use the seven-minute frosting, but I opted out of the white-chocolate poinsettia flowers on top. The cake came out beautifully, and the flavor has a nice spicy, citrus taste and the frosting is a light and fluffy meringue. Delish!
