Deb's Tips

Oh this looks lush – Our gorgeous Ginger cake mix, the juice of an orange, grated marzipan & dried mango. Smothered in a Cream Cheese gently folded with some icing sugar (lovingly licking that fork)! Sprinkled with orange zest left over from the juice of the orange used earlier. Now we are suitably smothered and sprinkled – I must go and find something sweet to eat! Deb the Bread
