In my house I’m not really considered a great baker. My dad is a fantastic baker, he’s a great cook too, and I think I got the cooking gene and maybe not so much the baking gene. But to my defense, gluten-free + vegan baking is challenging! So now you’re thinking, well why should I keep reading if she stinks at baking?! Let me go on… this cake is quite the exception to my baking fails, and quite frankly- I killed it! I’m pretty proud of this Ginger Spice Cake with Blood Orange “Buttercream” Frosting!
Ok, so you caught me. I didn’t do all the work gasp! I’ll admit I owe most of the credit to… these beautiful blood oranges!! Any recipe with blood oranges seems great- I mean, do you see how gorgeous they are? Perhaps one of nature’s finest, so you can imagine how elated I was when my local grocery store had them in stock! I pretty much screamed when I saw them (no- I’m not joking… I mean for real, pretty embarrassing lol).
This Ginger Spice Cake with Blood Orange “Buttercream” Frosting is moist (sorry to all you moist word haters!), sweet, flavorful, and of course I dare to say… delicious! I love the soft + feminine vibe. Summer is coming (I hope) so make this beauty for your next girlie get together or heck, just because you deserve it! Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead!
