#Recipe and contest: Orange Marmalade Cake with McCormick’s spices

Last Updated on

If you are a passionate foodie, you have no doubt spent some time on Pinterest! It is an awesome place to share recipes and find inspiration for your next kitchen creation. Well, I love spending time in the kitchen and was recently given the opportunity to work with McCormick’s to help spread the word about the Spring Pin-Spiration contest they are having! I was sent a wonderful selection of flavorings and spices to create a springtime recipe to share with you. So, here is what I decided to create. (I found the original recipe on AllRecipes.com) but made a couple of small modifications.
