Oranges are now in season and I love the orange smell of this cake with the most glossy satin icing....(which of course is my favorite icing to top it on any cake I make). I had difficulty taking pics because of the sheer glaze of the icing :). Now to the is a simple cake  which just have orange juice instead of milk or water. The satin icing is one of the quickest and easiest icing that I have ever will never go wrong.
