  5. To make the custard layer, place 1/3 cup mandarin oranges in a food processor fitted with the metal blade and process until pureed. Pour into a small bowl and stir in remaining 3 tsp. ginger liqueur and 1 tsp. orange zest.
  6. Rinse out the processor bowl and place softened cream cheese cubes into the food processor bowl, fitted with a metal blade. Process until smooth. Pour in condensed and evaporated milks and process carefully until mixture is smooth, pulsing at first so the mixture doesn't splatter. Add mandarin orange mixture and remaining 4 eggs, one at a time, processing only until combined and mixture is smooth. Pour over cake mixture in pan.
  7. Using a sheet of non-stick foil or spray a sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray, cover the pan TIGHTLY with the foil - very important!

  10. Bake in 350 F oven for 2 hours. Remove bundt cake from pan of water and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Remove the aluminum foil and carefully invert cake onto a large platter. Cool completely at room temperature.
  11. Garnish with the 12 reserved mandarin orange slices and cashew nut halves, alternating them over top of cake.
  12. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
