Recipes for the Kiwicakes 4th birthday cake

Gosh I've had a lot of emails saying how wonderful Fiona's prize winning cake looked and asking for her recipes. She has shared with us 2 of the 3 recipes. THANKS FIONA!. Here is a copy of what she sent me last night.

The recipes:

The bottom tier - Woolworths Brand 'Freefrom' Lemon GF cake mix! I added a couple of tablespoons of fresh lemon juice to the mix. The buttercream is normal with fresh lemon juice, and a couple of tablespoons of lemon rind.

The middle tier - Tamara Jane's recipe for chocolate banana cupcakes (from her Divine Cupcakes book), just baked in an 8" square. Buttercream is normal with some of the icing sugar replaced with cocoa.

The top tier.... sorry, it's a secret ;) The buttercream is just normal but with some orange rind, and fresh orange juice.
Thanks very much for that Fiona, everyone needs a secret or two, especially a recipe that is special to them. Now many of you have bought Tamara Jane's book from Kiwicakes, a lovely book from an awesome Kiwi author (Tamara Jane also runs cupcake decorating classes in Wellington). If you don't own a copy, I can reccomend it for some awesome flavour combinations.
