We don’t always need a reason to enjoy a beautifully decorated, homemade cake, right?! This orange rum cake recipe is simple to make and pairs perfectly with our meringue buttercream frosting, which is my favorite frosting EVER! We made it for our dragonfruit cupcakes here. The orange rum cake has a sponge cake texture with a buttery taste and it’s soaked in dark rum. This is a great “make it anytime” kind of cake recipe. I don’t know about you, but if I find myself super busy with work or wanting to take my mind off of a million things, I’ll bake! It truly helps! And I enjoy that I can focus solely on making a recipe and baking something sweet. Sometimes I’ll only have a bite when it’s finished and then serve the rest to my family. I guess it’s a good thing I’ll be surrounded by 3 boys who can eat all the treats before I do, ha! Enjoy!
