Directions

Cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt in a bowl. Set aside. In KitchenAid stand mixer bowl, beat eggs, oil, buttermilk, sugar and vanilla. Add dry ingredients, apples and cranberries. Mix on speed 2 for 1-2 minutes, until well combined. Divide into two greased 9" cake pans or a bundt pan and bake 30-35 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Glaze: Combine sugar, buttermilk, soda, butter and corn syrup in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Prick warm cake with a bamboo skewer evenly over the surface every 2 inches. Slowly pour warm glaze over cake allowing the cake to soak up the glaze. Cool cake until glaze is fully absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove pan and cool completely. Icing: In KitchenAid stand mixing bowl, whip butter and cream cheese on speed 7 until fluffy, scraping down bowl as needed. Add powdered sugar, orange extract and orange zest and mix on speed 1 for 1 minute. Mix on speed 3 for 2 minutes, until fluffy. Frost cake being sure to place icing between the layers of the 2 cakes.
