Orange butter cake

After saw Twister's post on cake, and realized so long didn't bake butter cake, immediately I bake one. I done a rectangular shape and some cup cake.
I also bought a bottle of Whipped light cream and some colorful candy to decorate the cup cakes, kids are so happy to decorate their own cup cakes.

I also baked 4 sultanas cakes last night ! I start at 9 pm and bake until 12.00 am . After washing everything up ( sigh) ,it's already 12.30am .

The size of the cake exactly yours (loaf cake pan). But you cake looks better than mine as you apply cream on it. That's why cannot post them in the blog , malulah !There are a lot of cake expert out there !(ha ha ha)

your small cake is very cute,看到肚子就饿了,我只会做简单的butter cake,那些cream不会,简单也要花上几个小时来做,有时为了孩子想要吃才会做。
