Blood Orange Layer Cake
Blood oranges are used three ways in this dessert: syrup made with fresh juice is brushed onto the cake's layers; chopped sections are tossed with mint as a filling; and whole sections garnish the top of the cake. You can make the layers ahead and keep them frozen for up to 2 months. Thaw at room temperature and then assemble. This cake is best served within 2 hours of assembling.
