YUM! Blood oranges are my absolutely favorite wintertime treat. I have dedicated so many recipes and creations to these humble fruit. Did you know there are multiple varieties of blood oranges? The grocery stores will mostly carry one variety, but there are specialty shipments you can receive from citrus farmers as well should you desire. But, the variety at the store work just perfectly for this pound cake. They are not only included in the cake, but also juiced into the brightly colored icing you see on top of the pound cake. They made it that color with no other additives, which is just amazing to me. Such a beautiful color!
