Position a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with foil. In a large mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cayenne. Add white Cheddar and orange Cheddar, then work in well with your fingers. Add cold butter. Quickly rub butter into flour mixture with your fingers until mixture resembles the texture of oatmeal with some large marble-size pieces.
Stir in the heavy cream; add buttermilk and stir just until absorbed. Dough will be chunky and dry at this point. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board. Using your hand, press and knead into a stiff dough.
Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. With a fork dipped in flour, prick evenly spaced holes all over the dough. Cut out 2 1/2-inch rounds, and place about 1/2 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet. Gather dough pieces, re-roll, cut out and place on the baking sheet.
Bake or 16 to 18 minutes, until well browned, rotating pan if needed to ensure even browning. Cool slightly before serving.
