Sweet Orange and Summer Fruit Cake

We were feeling really summery this week. With lots of fruit in the fridge and the sun bursting through the clouds we wanted to create something a little different. We started playing and experimenting and came up with this. Orange zest, summer fruits, pistachios, light butter cream topping and a delicate cake mix just waiting to be savored. So if you are looking for something special to wow your friends and melt your taste buds as we head into the last summer month then this is your cake. Zesty, fresh and bursting with flavor!
