Easter jaffa cake

Izzy wanted to cook a cake. A brown cake. By this I assumed she meant a chocolate cake. I have some oranges to use up, so we combine the two and made a jaffa marble cake.


Marble Jaffa Cake

2 eggs
cream
1 heaped teaspoon orange zest
1 cup SR Flour
1 Tblspn cocoa
orange food colouring

Crack 2 eggs in a 1 cup measure. Fill to top with cream.
Add zest and flour, stir to combine.
Divide mixture in half. Add cocoa to one half, and orange food colouring to the other.

Add half of the cocoa to a lined cake tin in blobs here and there. Add all of orange and then add rest of cocoa mix on top.
Bake for 30 minutes.

My sous chef/bowl licker!

I had some left over fondant icing in the freezer from a cake 2 the rescue kit. So I got it out and went looking for some pinspiration. Isn't this the cutest cake.

I iced our cake with just icing sugar, cocoa and water. Then went about making grass, carrots and a bunny. This is what ours turned out like, pretty darn good if I say so myself!
