This October, I’m all about fun and interesting snacks for Halloween. I love making something festive for my kids to come home from school to. I especially love when it earns me an extra hug or two. This super moist, incredibly delicious Orange Fanta bundt cake is beautiful to look at and earns me those extra hugs I love so dearly.

There are cross hatches, vertical stripes, dots and dashes. There are patches of green, gray and purple. Some of it has a loose-knit symmetry like a rorschach test with a punk attitude.
