STEP 1

Next, place the eggs in a separate bowl and add half of the sugar. Beat the mixture with a mixer for 2-3 minutes until it becomes a fluffy pale mass.

In a large bowl, beat the softened butter with a mixer. Add the remaining sugar and continue to beat until a creamy mass is formed. Then, add the orange zest and mix well.

TIPS: If your butter is too hard, a few seconds in the microwave can soften it up and make it easier to whip.

TIPS: Instead of using butter, you can opt for good quality margarine. It works just as well! But keep in mind that margarine contains salt. So, you might want to reduce the amount of salt in the recipe. Just a little heads up!

TIPS: Want to make the orange flavor in the cake even better? Just grind some sugar with freshly grated orange zest. Trust me, it’s a game-changer!

In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and orange juice. Mix thoroughly until smooth.

TIPS: When it comes to icing, I’ve got you covered. If it’s too thick for your liking, simply add a little more orange juice. On the other hand, if it’s too thin, sprinkle in some powdered sugar to thicken it up.

TIPS: Now, here’s one more head up about icing. It hardens pretty quickly. So, make sure to use it right away to avoid any clumpy disasters.
