It's time for the Cake Slice Bakers Cake of the Month for January 2014!
I apologize that my cake is 4 days late! Somehow the 20th always sneaks up on me! This past weekend I was in Portland, Oregon for a friend's wedding and I did not manage to get this cake baked before I left.

Because I baked my cake after the due date, I had the extra advantage of reading the other Cake Slice Bakers' experiences and then deciding what changes I wanted to make. Originally my plan was to add orange zest, orange juice, and an orange glaze to my pound cake. But then I realized that both of my zesters were at my parents' home and that I just happened to have a Lindt Intense Orange dark chocolate candy bar. I don't really love eating this candy by itself, but I thought it might be good (or at least interesting) in the cake.

The verdict on this cake is, based on taste, I wouldn't make it again. However, it was a pretty cake and it won't go to waste.
Hope everyone's staying warm (or cool, if it's hot where you are)!
