Baking Challenge

Jaffa Cake

Give your cake a name based on the ingredients and decoration – and tell us about the origin of your recipe.

"Brandy Old Fashioned" Jaffa Cakes

Tell us about your proudest moment – or humble failure – in this week’s baking challenge.

My proudest moment was when I saw that my Brandy/Orange gelatin had set. Wheww!

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

Brandy Old Fashioned is a very popular drink here in Wisconsin. It traditionally made with Brandy, orange and cherries. So I infused the orange gelatin with brandy and also infused the dark chocolate topping with cherry flavoring.

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
