It's amazing what recipes you can find on the internet and I found one for Jaffa cakes, one of the most popular treats in the UK as I'm sure Becky would testify to. :) For a first attempt, not too shabby. The sponge has turned out nice and soft and the orange jelly filling tastes good. The only negatives are that I put a bit too much chocolate on, it should be thinner, and I really need to stop using cheap dark chocolate and use better quality, something like Cadbury's Bourneville perhaps, as the cheap chocolate I used has a bit of a bitter aftertaste. Cheap milk chocolate tastes fine to me, but not dark. But all in all, quite a fun process. :)

This cake is a process I mean WOW! I’ve always wanted to make one of these. I’ve never eaten one in my life, now with the celiac I’ll never be able to eat one. So I’ll enjoy it through your post. :)

No not recently, had a busy few weeks and my back is playing up at the moment, so not much time for baking unfortunately! I'll let you know if I give them a try though :)
