This orange cake isn’t like every other. The Orange gives an underlying hint of citrus sweetness yet juxtaposed with the punch of the cinnamon gives a playground of flavours. Due to being partnered with the dates it gives a healthy feeling to help u not feel guilty when devouring this beautiful cake.
