OAP cake

My OAP Cake, was made for a special colleague at work who was celebrating entering the big 50 decade. Playing humorously yet subtly on the birthday in question I created an Orange, Almond and Polenta cake to mark the OAP nature of the bake! Each cake layer was made from one of the different ingredients, with generous helpings of mascarpone cream and orange curd sandwiching the whole cake together. Finally I made 50 individual OAP biscuits to accompany the main bake and made a few extra to crumble over and decorate the top with. Along with a scattering of toasted flaked almonds and orange zest.
