Luscious, simple, classic: tender and moist caramel cake is iced with browned butter frosting, which is nutty, a wee bit salty, and sweet. Candied almonds add festive notes to offset the simple aesthetic of the cake.
Like the golden, sparkly sun on a plate! Soft, tender golden layers studded with orange zest and softened with vanilla are filled with orange-vanilla bean pastry cream, the frosted with vanilla-orange zest buttercream. Writing in honey adds shine and golden sweetness while the demerara sugar on the sides and edges add a delightful sweet crunch.
