This is definitely my next favorite cake after chocolate! Spiced Orange and Cranberry Cake is buttery soft like chiffon and smells like heaven. It's a very unpretentious looking cake yet locked and loaded with the refreshing flavor of orange, cranberry and hint of cloves.

Bake it!  It's a serious kitchen aromatherapy treat!
