Step 2: prepare the baking pan
Grease the pan with butter and add some all purpose flour in it. Swirl the pan to flour coat the bottom and sides of the pan.
Step 3: Making of Orange cake
preheat oven to 375 in bake mode.
Take all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. whisk until all incorporated.
In a separate bowl, take all the wet ingredients, zest of Orange and mix all well.
Now add wet mixture into the dry mixture. Mix all together without lumps.

Once it baked, remove carefully from the oven and let it cool down for sometime.

Add orange zest to it and mix well.
Orange Icing is ready! It is soooo yumm!!
Step 5: Icing the cake
Once the cake is completely cooled down, take out the cake from cake pan and place it in cake stand/plate. [ I inverted the cake for smooth flat base]
Pour the icing in middle of the cake and use butter knife or back side of knife to spread the icing all over the cake. I left the sides of cake as it is. [you can apply icing if you need]
Decorate the cake with sliced oranges and orange zest.
Before you cut the cake, make sure the icing sets well. Happy Baking :)
