Chocolate cake with just the right amount of orange and topped with chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream and a chocolate drip makes this chocolate orange cake recipe hard to top.

Who doesn’t love cake – from Smith Island cake to southern red velvet cake to strawberry crunch cake to a chocolate chip loaf cake to an apple bundt cake.

You can impart so many flavors in cake. Perhaps one of the most well-known and liked flavors is the combination of chocolate and orange, made popular by Terry’s chocolate oranges. I like the combo so much, I even have a chocolate orange mousse.

1)Preheat the oven to 180 ° C (convection oven 160 ° C).

2)Prepare 330 g of FunCakes Mix for Sponge Cake as indicated on the package. Grease the baking pan with Bake Release Spray and divide the batter into two baking pans. Bake the sponge cakes t in the middle of the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes. Let them cool down on a cooling grid.

Isn’t your oven big enough to bake two sponge cakes at once? No problem, you’re perfectly fine baking one cake after the other.

Just mix the batters for the two cakes separately as well. If you leave the sponge cake batter for too long before baking it, it will loose the air. And we don’t want that! For the quantities of the single cakes, check our quantity table.

3)Prepare 225 g of FunCakes Mix for Enchanted Cream as indicated on the package. Take two table spoons of this and colour it orange with the FunColours Gel.

4)Cut both sponge cakes twice and fill the layers with jam of your choice and Enchanted Cream. Cover the cake all around with a good layer of Enchanted Cream and wipe here and there with the orange cream. Pull this tight using the side scraper. Let the cake cool for an hour in the refrigerator.

5)Heat the golden drip as indicated on the packaging and let the drip slide down the edge of the cake.

6)Place tip # 1M in a decorating bag. With a brush in the seam of the piping bag, draw a line with the orange FunColours Gel up into the decorating tip. Carefully fill the bag with the remaining Enchanted Cream® and pipe small tufts along the entire top edge of the cake. Return to refrigeration.

7) Melt the 4 colours of FunCakes Deco Melts in the microwave as indicated on the package and place in a decorating bag. Place the lollipops in the mould and fill them with the melted Deco Melts.

Let this set in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. Now easily take the lollipops out of the mould. Place the lollipops into the cake and sprinkle some nonpareils on top.
