Description

Originally I was going to make this as a marble cake but I’ve got a couple of them already on the website. As the colours are so contrasting I thought it would look cool as a layered cake. Just to make it look a little prettier, as I made this a gift for my friend who was feeling poorly, I iced mine with a little dairy free chocolate spread and a drizzle of yellow icing.

Enjoy!
