Orange Tea Cake perfect for showers and teas

Orange cakewebJust last week I got a few invites in the mail. A mixture of weddings and baby showers from friends near and far. Seems there is a need for a nice gift or a cake to aid in the gathering of friends and family. This cake is the perfect companion to accompany you to such an event. It’s a very elegant looking cake but very easy to make. No one will ever know it’s made with a mix but your secret is safe with me!
