Eat Cake

This cake is good enough for Orange Chocolate Marble cake with a delicious chocolate drizzle.....I got this recipe from Janis at Pinecone Camp.  Janis is a professional Lifestyle and Interiors photographer and each Monday she posts a" Baked On a Monday post".  Her recipes are always fabulous, easy and best of all her photographs of her baking are magazine beautiful. For those amateur photographers who struggle to photograph food, take a look at Janis's Monday posts to see her gorgeous creative shots....  she makes it look simple, but I know from trying that food photos are very tricky..

Yesterday, Janis also posted a beautiful gift wrapped in newspaper with a gorgeous recycled scrap fabric ribbon.  You can see it HERE.  This post confirms what I wrote about HERE, that you can gift beautifully without EVER buying a piece of gift wrap or ribbons ever again.......

I doubled this recipe so I could deliver a little Sunday surprise to my neighbors, and it turned out beautifully.
I also used an organic orange because you need to zest the orange for the recipe.....It's divine..


  1. Yummmm! (must wipe drool off keyboard) ;)

  2. Chania, OMGoodness this cake is not only gorgeous, it looks delish, I would probable over-do the chocolate drizzle, and eat the whole cake.
