Grease and flour one 10-inch bundt pan. Cream butter and slowly add the sugar, beating until smooth. Beat in the eggs and mix thoroughly. Stir in the vanilla, orange peel, and grated zucchini and blend well. Mix together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Add to the zucchini mixture alternately with the milk and beat until thoroughly mixed. Pour batter in prepared pan and bake for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

To make glaze, stir vanilla into sugar until a runny paste is formed. Stir in peel and enough juice to make glaze pourable. When cake is completely cooled, turn out of pan onto serving plate and drizzle glaze over the top. Garnish with fresh flowers.
