Equipment:

Instructions:

Heat the oven to 180 degrees.

Mix the sugar, margarine and eggs together.

Sift in the flour and cocoa powder.

Mix well and seperate evenly into the 2 baking tins, bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until cooked properly (clean skewer).

When the cakes have cooled on a wire rack mix the buttercream mixture.

Spread a layer of marmalade on the top of one of the sponges and then add a layer of buttercream on top of this, sandwich the 2 cakes together.

Melt the chocolate using your preferred method and pour over the top, allow to drizzle down the sides and leave to cool.

Enjoy!
