This is my play on a traditional Battenburg. For best results, buy white marzipan rather than the Day-Glo yellow version, as this gives more of a mellow colour that can match the colour of the sponge. Cakes are for sharing with friends and family, and I love this cake because it is the perfect choice for a man – it’s a long way from the light and fluffy yellow and pastel pink colours of a classic Battenburg!
