    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour a 2L Bundt tin. Toss the apple pieces, granulated sugar and the spices in a medium bowl.
    2. Beat together the caster sugar, eggs, vegetable oil, orange juice, orange and vanilla extracts in a large bowl; whisk thoroughly to combine. Fold in the flour, baking powder and salt into the egg mixture. Spoon a third of the batter into the prepared tin. Top with half of apple mixture. Cover with another third of the batter; top with remaining apples, then batter.
    3. Bake the cake for about 1 hour 30 minutes or until the top is brown and when a skewer is inserted near centre comes out with moist crumbs attached.
    4. Cool the cake in tin on a cooling rack for 15 minutes. Run knife around sides of tin to loosen. Turn the cake out onto the cooling rack and leave until cool.
    5. Place the icing sugar in a bowl, drizzle in a quarter of the water and stir together. Leave it a minute. Lift the spoon out of the icing sideways; it should run off in thick ribbons. If not, add a tiny bit more water, but don't overdo it.
    6. Place the cake on a cake stand or plate and drizzle over the icing leaving the icing to drizzle down the sides. Decorate with a few slices of crystallized ginger and a light sprinkling of golden icing sugar.
