Double Chocolate Birthday Cake

Chocolate Orange cake with Coconut cream on top. It’s a classic for my girl’s birthdays. I’ve been making this cake for the past six-seven years. It’s chocolatey, rich in flavour – the orange peel, the chocolate, and the chocolate again. It’s a winner, no one can’t get enough of it! This cake builds traditions!
