Honestly, I can’t believe another year has passed, even if that year was 2020 (which never seemed to end). It’s been 7 long years since I decided to give blogging a try.

So this year I decided to celebrate with a flavorful little cake, one that brings spring into my home. I decided on blood orange and raspberry, since both of these flavors are sweet, sour and just burst in your mouth. Also, I love the color these two resulted in my cake!

I used my delicious and trusty muffin/cupcake recipe so the middle of your cake may rise higher but you can fix the problem simply cooling the cake upside down.

The frosting is so simple and versatile, basically you can use any flavor you want. I used raspberry jelly, but you can definitaly use fresh raspberries, or any other berries!
