Fresh Orange Cake

We're huge fans of citrus-flavored cakes, and this recipe was too good to pass up. It "uses orange zest and fresh orange juice and is topped with a smooth chocolate glaze." The orange flavor is somehow "subtle and pronounced all at the same time," and the chocolate glaze is a perfect complement.

Another plus: something about this cake is bright and joyful, which is just what we needed this week. (Anyone else sitting in the middle of a blizzard?!)
