Olympic Farewell with a celebration Orange Cake
Olympic Orange Celebration Cake
From the start of the London 2012 Olympics with Bradley Wiggins ringing the bell for the magnificent Opening Ceremony to the fabulous cacophony of music and dancing at the Closing Ceremony, for a couple of weeks, we’ve witnessed everything from sheer determination, dedication and most of all fun!
Outside my Gamesmaker workplace!
And I’ve got many of my own memorable moments working as one of the 70,000 volunteer Gamesmakers in the Aquatics Centre. It was a real privilege to be part of this wonderful experience and work with a team of brilliant people to ‘make it happen’.
Made short work of the cake!
As a treat for our final shift, I created an Olympic Celebration Cake, using sponsor’s ingredients and decorations from Sainsburys. It was based on Grandma’s wonderful Orange Cake which you can find on page 43 of her book Grandma Abson's Traditional Baking and I decorated it with Orange cream filling from page 111. It certainly gave us a boost to complete our final shift in style!
We made it happen!
Here’s a toast to the Olympic legacy! Let the spirit live on to inspire a generation! Guess what we are doing ................ Tom Daley needn’t worry about any competition from us in Rio in 2016!
