Orange Kiss-Me Cake

It's early February which means both love and frost are in the air. This original dessert plays to them both.

The trick is that a whole orange and some buttermilk go into the cake, making it bright and tangy enough to blast you out of your winter blues. And, to make things special enough for a special someone, it's topped with homemade candied orange peel (dipped in dark chocolate of course.)
