This gorgeous cake is elegant enough for any wedding but easy enough to make that even an inexperienced baker could attempt it. The fresh flavors of orange and honey paired with a creamy, tangy ricotta cheese filling make a sweet and summery cake your guests will drool over.
To begin, simply mix your cake mix with all the ingredients below. Easy enough, right? After you mix, pour the batter into your prepared pans, and bake until soft, fluffy and delicious.
Then you need to let your cakes cool for a while — like, for an hour — so the poor icing doesn't melt off. After they've cooled, slice off the tops slightly to level the cakes and create a beautiful 2-layer masterpiece.
After your cakes are cooled, prepare the delicious cheesy filling. The ricotta and the orange make this incredible combination that you never thought could work so well.
Once the filling has been made, top your bottom layer with a very hefty dollop. Like, very hefty. You want every bite of the finished product to have this decadently delicious taste. (Or you could eat it with a spoon by yourself, which works too.)
After the filling, top the fluffy cake with a big, hefty spoonful of homemade vanilla bean frosting. That is, if you manage to not eat the frosting right out of the bowl with a spatula. I didn't do that, just so you know.
Unless your wedding guests are OK with eating a big dollop of frosting, you should probably spread it all over the cake. Then, when it's frosted, top the cake with pretty orange zest and fresh orange slices. Totally easy, natural and gorgeous.
And then when it's ready, slice it into pieces, and serve it to your guests. Or just eat the whole thing yourself.
