The cake layers are brown sugar buttermilk cake with a hint of blood orange zest.
The cake layers are soaked with a blood orange and thyme syrup. I was really curious to try this recipe because of the use of the thyme!
Each cake layer was then topped with a raspberry vanilla bean Italian meringue buttercream. A blood orange glaze was poured over the top and drips down the sides and the cake is topped with a crown of fresh thyme.
