A Cake Fit for a Queen
How fantastic it was for Nadiya Hussain to be asked to make the Queen a cake. But also how nerve racking, even more so as she wasn’t given any specifications.
Apparently at one point Nadiya had eight cake designs in front of her but she eventually decided on an orange drizzle cake filled with vanilla butter cream and orange marmalade.
It made me laugh that she said - women are such good multitaskers!
“I've been making a cake, making the kids dinner and making packed lunches."
Orange Drizzle Cake
I was interested to hear that it was an Orange drizzle cake rather than the traditional Lemon Drizzle we all know and love. But perhaps this fantastic amateur baker was inspired by Mary Berry’s spiced whole orange layer cake.
Wonky or not well done Nadiya! A cake fit for a queen, or should I say The Queen.
