Day 21: 30 Days of Baking

Some calculations this morning led me to discover I have so far used 58 eggs, and just over 4kg of sugar. 9 days to go to add to this total!

London Marathon day today. I brought an orange and almond torte to the marathon supporters tea and cake day at my uncle’s house. The recipe uses the whole orange, skin, pith and all. It gives a slightly bitter taste that goes well with the almonds. It was incredibly moist, more like a dessert really. I also tried a piece of Clare’s 4 layer cappuccino cake which was equally delicious.

I made a marathon themed box for today. It deserves its own picture I think.

And here’s the cake and box together

There’s still time to donate if you wish, at
