In the middle of putting on the topping of milk chocolate and all is well I'd next use 300g of flour, butter n sugar as the cake didn't rise a lot? And I used vanilla essence instead as I had no orange and the bdy cake was a matter of urgency lol Great cake!

Think I'll try this one for the next adult birthday instead of popping into M & S for their version - looks fun and impressive at the same time
