This was my birthday cake. Since I made the Mint Overload Cake, I have been thinking about what other kind of cakes I would like to make that would be similar.
Two of my favourite chocolates are mint chocolate and chocolate orange. Therefore, it felt like it was time to do something with chocolate orange.
As we got closer to my birthday, I wanted to make a big cake and I knew it had to incorporate chocolate orange.
I made this cake similar to the Mint Overload Cake because that cake was really tasty.
I enjoyed making this cake as it challenged me because I only make big cakes every so often and I always struggle to get the amount of icing I need to cover big cakes.
I can never seem to get the measurements right when I make big cakes, I ever end up with too little icing or too much. I seemed to have perfected it with this recipe though.
