no food colouring in sight!

I bought a big bag of Sicilian blood oranges last week, which were delicious, however the last 2 had been languishing in the fruitbowl, so I thought, I would make an orange version of lemon drizzle cake. Anyway I couldn't find the bottom of the cake tin so I made cupcake versions instead. Obligatory sprinkles for the children and candied orange peel for the grown ups!!. The juice was such a deep red that it turned the icing a beautiful shade of blossom pink, and not a drop of artificial colouring in sight (except for the sprinkles!!!)
