Easter Cake

I made this orange cake for some visitors dropping in yesterday on their way camping. It's full of sugar and white flour but 'HEY' it's Easter. It's a super easy food processor recipe if you'd like to try it:

200g Orange (weigh it as it effects the consistency)
175g butter (chopped at room temperature)
3 eggs
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!
