Every year for Will’s birthday his mom makes an orange cake. It’s his favorite and he loves it. I’ve had it, it’s delicious! Well, apparently this cake somes from a box (apparently it’s the one thing Cathy doesn’t make from scratch) and said box isn’t sold in Scotland. So, I had to find a new orange cake for Will to eat on his birthday.
Enter in Allrecipes.co.uk with my Orange cake!
Well, I got all of my ingredients together and gave it a shot!
And then VOILA!! But, I forgot to take a picture because as soon as it was done I out it in a bag and ran to New College. See, I had arranged some of Will’s school mates to meet me in Rainy Hall (where everyone eats) to surprise Will for his birthday and the cake was taking longer than anticipated. I didn’t have 2 round cake pans so I put it in my casserole dish.
But, everyone showed up and Will was surprised and best of all…
They all LOVED it!
Needless to say, Will now has a new birthday cake!
