Iced Orange Cake (Moist Orange Cake with Citrus Orange Icing)

Iced Orange Cake
I made this cake last weekend and it came out so moist and soft.The orange flavour just lifted up the cake and the aroma of the cake was so good. I had a small piece left over and I tasted it the next day and it was so yummy,This cake get better the next day.The icing I made is a simple orange icing which was yummy,but you could make any icing you want.Since the cake has orange zest and orange juice it keeps well for 3-4 days..This is one of Rachael Allen’s recipe..I added some orange juice into it...You could even add some nuts in this..
