Orange Coco Butter Cake

When my sweet little girl saw me slicing up the cake and the stripes patterns appeared, she exclaimed : "Mummy you made a tiger cake! So cool!" and she imitated to roar like a tiger at the same time....hahaha ok that means I'm successful in making this cake looks like tiger cake ^0^.

This is a simple orange coco butter cake. The black stripes is actually made with black cocoa powder instead of the usual cocoa powder! The price is rather steep too, 200gm about S$9++. You can just use normal cocoa powder like hershey brand if you can't get hold of the black version one.
