I simply love the Pioneer Woman!

This is a cake I watched her make recently…as I sat cross-legged…drooling…in front of the TV….

Just as I do every time I watch her show!

It’s ok…I know you do it too!

I wanted mine to taste a little more orangey—yes..that’s a word…

so I altered it a little with 1/2 of the soda and 1/2 OJ…and all OJ in the glaze…Yum!
