Make sure to check that your baking powder and corn starch are also gluten-free. This ensures that everyone can dig into this delicious treat without worries! **Vegan Option:** For the orange biscuit, substitute eggs with a commercial egg replacer or a combination of flaxseed and water (1 tablespoon flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoons water per egg, let it sit for 5 minutes). Replace the cream in the orange crème with coconut cream and the butter with a vegan margarine. Finally, use agar-agar instead of gelatin in the mango confit. Voila! A completely vegan tropical delight! 🌿🍰


          • Why does my biscuit come out dense and not fluffy?

            Make sure you are properly whipping the eggs and sugar until fluffy and are folding in the dry ingredients gently to avoid deflating the batter.

          • How do I know if my mango confit is set properly?

            The confit should come out of the ring mold cleanly and hold its shape. If it’s too soft, it may need additional time in the freezer.

          • Can I substitute orange juice with another fruit juice?

            Absolutely! Lemon juice or a mix of citrus juices can be a great substitute, but remember, it will change the flavor profile.

          • How can I make sure my icing is perfectly smooth?

            Ensure your butter and cream cheese are at room temperature and beat them well to avoid lumps. You can also sift your powdered sugar before mixing in.

          • Why does my cake sometimes crack on top?

            Baking at too high a temperature or overmixing the batter can cause cracks. Ensure your oven is properly preheated and the batter is mixed just until combined.

          • How long can I store this cake in the refrigerator?

            This cake can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Always serve it at room temperature for the best flavor.
