Step 1
Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease a 6cm-deep, 19cm square (base) cake pan. Line base and sides with baking paper, allowing 2cm overhang on all sides.

Step 2
Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and orange rind together until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until just combined. Stir in flours, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon and milk. Spread mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in centre of cake comes out clean. Stand in pan for 10 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack to cool.

Step 3
Make frosting: Using an electric mixer, beat butter until light and fluffy. Beat in icing sugar and vanilla until combined.

Step 4
Using a serrated knife, cut cake in half. Place base on a plate. Spread with half the frosting. Top with cake top. Spread remaining frosting over top of cake. Serve.
