    I recently made a cake for a family member who wanted the cake covered in buttercream only.
    My problem begins when they start asking for decorations. It doesn't always go easy as expected.

    I made this cake the other day, thought I'd share. It is a chocolate/orange cake with various layers of flavour


    Thanks for listening.
    Petals.
