Dreamsicle Cake! (Refined Sugar Free!!)

This summer I really got into dreamsicle flavored EVERYTHING! I made dreamsicle shakes, dreamsicle cocktails, and a dreamsicle CAKE! This cake instantly became a crowd pleaser around here. Lightly orange flavored cake with whipped mascarpone frosting. There is just something about orange and sweet cream together… I’m not going to keep you waiting any longer!
