2 Pour 3 cups flour into a bowl. Place cranberries in another bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of flour into cranberry bowl and toss gently to coat berries.

3 Beat together butter and sugar until soft and fluffy. Mix in baking powder and salt, just until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, adding 2 tablespoons of flour after each egg, beating after each addition. Add vanilla, orange zest, and orange juice and beat until combined.

Remove from heat and pour cranberries into pot, stirring gently to coat cranberries with sugar mixture. When coated, pour onto a cooling rack with parchment underneath (to catch the drips) in a single layer and let sit for about 45 minutes to an hour. Pour remaining sugar into a bowl and add cranberries, tossing gently to coat with sugar. Decorate cake with sugared cranberries.
