When I saw this months BBC GoodFood magazine cover cake, I knew that I had to have a go at the recipe definitely a statement cake! With chocolate and orange flavour sponges, orange flavour buttercream, covered with chocolate icing.
For the cake, you need to make 3 orange and 3 chocolate rectangular sponge and a pair of round chocolate sponge but I decided to make a slightly smaller version so made 2 of each rectangular sponge instead of the 3 to save a bit of time.
I was suppose to use butter in the recipe but I chose to use vegetable oil instead, so the sponges turned out a lot softer and delicate than it was suppose to. I had to be extra careful rolling up the sponge as a few slices was starting to break but glad you can't see my mistakes.
Such a fun cake to make!
Tasted lovely too!
