WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THESE MINI BUNDT CAKES:

These blood orange mini bundt cakes are made from scratch using simple ingredients. I used fresh blood orange juice and zest in the recipe. If for some reason you cannot find blood oranges, you can use grapefruit or navel oranges. The icing colour will not be the same if you use other citrus fruits. Blood oranges are milder in citrus flavour, but with a hint of raspberry. The colour makes everything a beautiful pink colour.

For zesting citrus:

I use a fine microplane zester that I bought years ago at Williams Sonoma, but I found a similar one on Amazon.
