I was making cakes for people at work when a co-worker asked if I could make him an Irish potato cake, I said sure and then he said to " make it Irish"

So I pulled out my old stand by and started playing again. This cake is now the tradional birthday cake for people celebrating thier 21st. The original was made with Jamiesons but have since discovered that Disorrono works really well too. Hope you enjoy
