Instructions
For the Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add in sour cream, and beat until well combined.
  3. Add in granulated sugar and orange zest, beating until well combined.
  4. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  5. Add in vanilla extract, almond extract, and orange juice. Mix.
  6. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Stir until just combined.
  7. In a small bowl, mix cranberries and 2 Tbsp flour together (this helps prevent the cranberries from sinking to the bottom). Add the cranberries to the batter, and mix.
  8. Grease a bundt cake pan well (I used baking spray) and pour the batter evenly into the pan.
  9. Bake for 65-70 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean (at the 50 minute mark, I covered the cake with loosely with foil to prevent too much browning on top of the cake).
  10. Allow the cake to cool for 20 minutes before removing from the pan. Allow to cool completely before adding the glaze.
For the White Chocolate Glaze
  1. Heat heavy cream and almond extract over med-low heat until it begins to simmer (stirring constantly so the cream does not scald).
  2. Take off the heat and pour over the white chocolate. Allow to stand about 1 minute, then stir the mixture until the white chocolate melts completely and the glaze is smooth.
  3. Allow to sit 5-10 minutes so the glaze can thicken.
  4. Pour the glaze over the cake. Top with sliced almonds and cranberries, if desired.
