I've joined the growing band of Washi Tape lovers
They are beautiful Japanese tissue tapes that are
great for journalling and playtime. They came beautifully packaged in little tins wrapped in tissue and stickers.

200g Orange (weigh it as it effects the consistency)
175g butter (chopped at room temperature)
1 cup castor sugar
2 cups self-raising flour (sifted)
Cut the unpeeled orange into segments, remove the pips and process until finely chopped. Add the other ingredients and process until well combined.
Spread into a greased and floured ring tin and bake for 45mins in a mod (180c) oven. Stand for 10 mins then turn onto a wire rack to cool completely before icing if desired.
Icing: 60g soft butter, 2 tsp grated orange rind, 2 tlbs orange juice, 2 cups icing sugar. Beat well.
As you can see I couldn't help myself from tarting it up with calendulas, roses and of course rabbits!

This beautiful song is sung by a talented singer songwriter from Australia's Southwest and now living in U.K. I'm proud to say I knew her when she was a little girl and she's from our hometown.
