Orange and honey cakes for Fairtrade

I've been baking orange and honey cakes for my work colleagues to celebrate Fairtrade fortnight - they didn't last long but luckily I saved a few for you.

Orange cakes for Fairtrade fortnight

Here's the recipe;
175g unsalted butter
175g light brown Fairtrade sugar
1 tablespoon Fairtrade honey
3 large eggs
175g self-raising flour
2 tablespoons Fairtrade orange juice
Zest of 1 Fairtrade orange

Cream the butter, sugar, eggs, honey and orange juice, then mix in the flour. Bake in cake cases at 180 degrees for aprox 15 mins or until golden brown. Decorate with icing made with icing sugar and lime juice and decorate with orange zest.
