Orange-Almond Cake with Buttercream Frosting





  1. Step 1

    Using a serrated knife, trim tops of 8-inch round cakes to make level. Place four strips of parchment paper around perimeter of a serving plate or lazy Susan. Place first layer on cake plate. Spread frosting over first layer with a small offset spatula so it extends just beyond edges.

  2. Step 2

    Place remaining layer on top, bottom side up. Gently sweep away any loose crumbs with a pastry brush. Using an offset spatula, cover top and sides with a thin layer of frosting (also use any of the excess frosting visible between the layers). Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Using an offset spatula, cover cake again with remaining frosting. Repeat process with 6-inch round cakes. Serve.
