Tips for Making the Best Orange Cake:

  • Use a pastry brush to get into the crevices of the rose shaped bundt cake when greasing it with baking spray.
  • Using fresh orange juice as well as zest in both the cake and glaze packs this cake with amazing orange flavor.
  • For the zest, it’s much easier to zest the oranges before juicing.
  • The easy jam glaze (we love apricot), adds a different texture and takes this cake to a whole new level.

Happy baking!
