Cranberry Cake...

Tomorrow or rather later today is my roommates birthday! A wonderful excuse to try a new cake recipe!!

I have two 9in round cranberry cakes in the oven baking right now! It smells sooo good in here! I'm hoping it is an indicator of how it is going to taste! :) It is basically just a white cake mix with a cup of chopped cranberries, a tablespoon of orange 'zest' and a cup of finely chopped walnuts... Simple!

The recipe I have comes with a cream cheese frosting recipe but I'm not going to use that. I am going to make a ricotta filling for the middle of it and an orange butter cream frosting for it.

The original plan was to use grapefruit zest in the mix and do a grapefruit butter cream filling/frosting for it, but I took a vote and everyone wanted ricotta so I decided to go with orange instead.

I will post pictures when the cake gets out of the oven and the finished product tomorrow when it is all decorated!

I'm excited!! :D
