Jaffa Cake

Steve's 30th Jaffa Cake
Originally uploaded by cupcaketastic.
The other week I was asked to whip up a 30th birthday cake for a mate. Having very little in the cupboard in the way of ingredients and pretty low in enthusiasm, I created the Jaffa Cake, not an original combination orange & chocolate but it is always a crowd pleaser. I had a baked 12 inch Orange Butter Cake, in the freezer which had sank in the middle, but flipping it over hid that little problem. So I covered in wonderful Chocolate Glaze and encrusted the top with smashed Jaffas, a ring of whole Jaffas around the bottom finished the look (and stopped me from eating too many leftovers). Vola - Happy 30th Birthday!
