The unadorned spice cake layers, which need to stand overnight to develop their flavor, are delicious on their own. Filling the layers with the Orange Curd and frosting them with the orange-scented Meringue Frosting makes Flo Braker's cake extraordinary. Beautiful Desserts
The citrus in this light, airy spice cake is a natural match for the tartness of Champagne. Because of the cake's sugariness, a sweeter "extra-dry" cuvée works better than an austere nonvintage brut. Look for Mumm Extra Dry or Mo&235;t & Chandon White Star.
