I love it when I can tick off two tasks in one go – and on this occasion it was baking for the school cake stall and writing an article about a recipe using orange. Love it!
So after a bit of recipe rifling I found a lovely orange and poppyseed loafcake which I promptly adapted into little cakes for little hands. I also found the perfect vehicle for the rather retro orange and lemon jelly decorations I found in Morrisons recently that took me straight back to childhood memories of my mum’s baking cupboard.
The sponge is super light and flecked with orange zest and poppy seeds – perfect un-frosted for lunchboxes.
The icing i’ve used is a cross between glace and butter icing – really nice to spread on and gives a great finish.
