old-fashioned yellow cake with orange buttercream.

this was a birthday cake i made last fall for someone special who happens to have a thing for orange frostings, icings & buttercreams. all things orange, in fact.


i followed the recipe mostly, switching out the vanilla essence for vanilla bean paste and adding a bit more flour. this cake is incredible because it can be made as a loaf and still turn out quite perfectly.


i didn’t save the frosting recipe [yet again — i promise i’m saving everything from here on out]! however, i’m fairly certain it was similar to the one listed in the link provided at the bottom of the page. i changed quite a few things in the recipe i did find but the one listed should turn out to be close. xx.
