Mandarin Orange Cake

Hello everyone, I finally have some time back on my hands to get back to baking for the fall and winter season!

The Mandarin Orange Cake comes from my Grandma Anna Vee and it has become one of our favorite cake recipes.

As you can see in the picture above, my family ate half the cake before I had time to photograph it.

After the cake is frosted, I put extra oranges on top for garnish, and then put it in the fridge for about an hour. I found that the cake tastes so good chilled. This cake is moist, sweet, and super delicious.
