Birthday Battenberg
Mark’s birthday was a rather busy day what with nearly getting stuck in the wrong country. Not a lot of time for cake baking! So here it is a few days late with rather a lot of candles. Note to self: be more tidy in the kitchen.
Baked at 160 degrees in a fan oven for 30 mins.
350g soft butter
350g golden caster sugar
280g plain flour
100g ground almonds
3½ tsp baking powder
6 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
I then separated the mixture in half and added 2 tbsp of berry coulis to one bowl and 2 tbsp of milk to the other.
I trimmed the outside edges of the sponge and smothered it in apricot jam before wrapping it in natural marzipan.

Hahah! But yeah… I was chatting with a buddy from ‘FA’ when he suddenly linked me to ‘Nyan Cat’ stating, “We need to jump onto the bandwagon… ‘BATTENBURG BUNNY’.”

And here we are :P The idea is credited to him and the design and animation is by me xP
