I'd never heard of a Battenburg Cake before this challenge. So much the better. I love exploring something foreign to me.
Normally I would try a unique variation of a classic recipe given, but Mandy's classic Battenburg looked so lovely. Besides I love almond buttercake, and loved the symbolism behind the pink and white squares said to represent the four princes of Battenburg. Classic it is.
