This cake looks great. I am surprised combining milk with orange juice does not make it curdle. I guess the chocolate and other things being pre-mixed must prevent that. Thanks for the recipe. I really want to try such an orangy dessert now. Best wishes to your son!

This looks very beautiful, Priya. Orange and dark chocolate are such classic combinations. How did you make the little hearts?
