  • 1-2 tablespoons Amoretti Blood Orange Flavor
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries, chopped

  • 3 pounds CK Buttercream
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Orange Spice Cake:
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 2 - 8 inch cake pans or line a cupcake pan.
2. Add wet ingredients to mixing bowl.
3. Add cake mix and beat on low speed until incorporated, scraping down the bowl. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
4. Add flour to the chopped cranberries and toss to coat. Add 3/4 cup of cranberries into batter.
5. Divide batter equally among pans. Top cakes with remaining cranberries and bake according to box mix directions.
6. Cool on wire rack for 10-20 minutes before removing the cakes from their pans. Cool completely.

Buttercream:
1. When ganache is room temperature, mix into the buttercream until incorporated.
2. Add in the extra whipping cream until you get a good spreading consistency.
3. Add in the sparkling wine flavoring.
4. Divide buttercream in half. Color half pink. Keep the other half white or add another color of your choosing.

White Chocolate Ganache:
1. In a heavy saucepan, bring cream and corn syrup to a boil.
2. Add butter and invert sugar.
3. Cool to at least 98°F. Add melted chocolate.
4. Blend with a whisk until a smooth consistency is reached. Let come to room temperature.

Suggested frosting technique for cupcakes:
Fit a pastry bag with a 1M tip. Fill half the bag with the pink buttercream and the other half with the white buttercream. Pipe a swirl or rose on the cupcakes and top with a sugared cranberry. Sprinkle with some jewel dust for added sparkle.
