P3101926 
Happy Birthday Ms. T!!
Ms. T is Jack’s pre-school teacher and when I heard that the teachers were planning her a birthday party I had to volunteer to bake the cake! I was so excited to try out some of the techniques I learned in my Cake Decorating Class! When I started, I was thinking I was going to make a lemon cake but, then when I saw the beautiful Clementines in my fridge I thought ORANGE! 
3 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 c sugar
1 c butter, softened
5 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 c orange juice
3/4 c milk
zest from 1 clementine*
In stand mixer add all dry ingredients and blend for a few mins to lighten up. Add softened butter and mix 2 mins.  Add vanilla to milk & juice and add a little liquid then egg and rotate ending with milk mixture.
Put in greased & floured cake pans. Bake 350 for 35-45mins
