Orange Sponge Cake | Food

I love baking. Last Friday I decided to whip up a birthday cake. I decided on an orange sponge cake with a chocolate icing.

This recipe is adapted from a recipe I found on All Recipes.

This cake ended up being so fluffy and soft and delish! I added a dark chocolate icing.
