I’ve been more than obsessed with citrus lately and these Mini Orange Bundt Cakes are just a tiny, adorable example. I made a few desserts this season using citrus and there’s an amazing Orange Pound Cake Recipe on my blog too, in case you love orange desserts as much as I do.

For some reason I associate citrus, orange in particular with holiday season. To me a holiday dessert is not complete without a splash of orange juice or some orange zest sprinkled over any type of cake, really. I’m also a big fun of mini desserts, they’re all soo cute, can’t resist making some every once in a while, although they require a bit more work and patience to look perfect! But it’s totally worth it, you won’t regret any minute spent on making and decorating these cuties!

These Mini Orange Bundt Cakes turned out absolutely delicious and they would make a great addition to any festive event you might be hosting. But they work just as great as a simple dessert on lazy weekends. They are simple and easy to make too, if you have mini bundt cake molds. I baked mine in silicone molds and I didn’t need any baking paper to line the molds. I’m no expert but I think the silicone molds also help the cakes bake a bit faster.
