This cake served three purposes : for the bake-through, the February bake-off and most importantly my husband's b'day cake. His b'day cakes are always decorated by our two kids. I make the cake, fill and crumb coat it, then hand it over to them. I have absolutely NO say in the matter.
It's the first time I made orange curd with Seville oranges. Actually it's the first time I ever made orange curd. Somehow, I always end up making lemon curd. All I can say is, the Seville orange curd is excellent. The flavour is very intense. I used only two oranges. Everything went pretty well with all the components except the cake itself. The height was only 1 1/2" as opposed to the 2" it was supposed to be. I would have started over again but didn't have the time to do so. 1 1/2" it is!
The cake was out of this world! Need I say more??????
