|Triple Threat Battenberg Cake|
|Mixing Chocolate Plastique--very easily came together!|
|Takes a bit to get it warmed up enough to roll out. Next time would use chocolate powder as it ended up with white on the outside. Some people had shiny plastique but don't know how they did it|
|Pampered Chef Casserole dish prepared to hold three different batters. Made tinfoil divisions, then covered them and bottom of pan with buttered parchment paper.|
|Used the spatula to measure strips and cut with sharp serrated knife|
|Made green mint, yellow orange, and chocolate cake by dividing batter into three bowls and then colored and flavored them|
|Cakes out of pan and trimmed|
|Batter before dividing--nice batter|
|Pulverized a whole orange to put in cake batter after taking out seeds|
|Rice flour I made in my Magic Mill from white rice kernals|
