orange cake with chocolate ganache

Orange Marmalade Cake


How elegant and stunning does this orange marmalade cake look?! This orange cake is the ultimate treat for citrus lovers! The combination of the sweet and tender vanilla cake with tangy orange marmalade is perfection! I thought that this cake would be beautiful with simple garnishes and added some orange slices for the finishing touches.

For this orange-lovers cake, I started with delicate and moist white cake layers loaded with tons of orange flavor! I added orange liqueur directly into the batter and you can also add the zest of one or two orange for an even more intense flavor. Then, I spread each layer with sweet and tangy orange marmalade. I love the slightly bitter flavor from the orange rind; it combines so well with the sweet cake and chocolate ganache. And you can’t have an orange marmalade cake without orange buttercream frosting! I added more orange liqueur to the buttercream; feel free to add orange zest to the mix, too! To add the finishing touches, I poured over some chocolate ganache – it’s the perfect addition to this cake! It adds both beauty and incredible flavor!
