1) Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour two (2) 8 X 4 X 2-inch loaf pans. Line bottoms with parchment paper.

2) Cream butter and 2 cups of sugar in a bowl with paddle attachment for about 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. With mixer on medium speed, beat in the eggs, one at a time, and the orange zest.

3) Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together into a large bowl.

4) In another bowl mix 1/4 cup orange juice, buttermilk and vanilla.

5) Add flour and buttermilk mixture alternately to the batter, beginning, and ending with flour.

6) Divide between 2 pans and smooth the tops. Bake for 45 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes.

7) Make syrup while cake is baking. Put sugar and orange juice in small saucepan over low heat until the sugar dissolves.

8) When cakes are done and cooled 10 minutes take them out of the pans and place on the baking rack set over a tray. Spoon the syrup over the cakes and allow the cakes to cool completely.

9) Whisk the glaze ingredients together until smooth. Add a few drops of juice if necessary to make it pour easily. Pour over the top of one cake and allow the glaze to dry. Wrap well, and store in the refrigerator.
