In a small bowl combine the cashew nuts with just enough water to cover and set aside to soak while you prepare the cake.
Rest for approximately 90 minutes (how long it takes to make the cake from prep to finished baking)
Drain off the water from the soaking cashew nuts and transfer them to a food processor.
Adding half the orange juice process the nuts on high for about 3-5 minutes, stopping to scrap down the sides often, until the nuts form a smooth paste. Add more orange juice as you go if needed.
Once the nuts are smooth and creamy add any remaining orange juice the icing sugar and vanilla, process quickly for 1 minute to combine.
One the cake is completely cool spread over the frosting thickly and top with a little extra orange zest if you desire.
