  1. Method Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 5cm deep, 21cm x 31cm (base) slab pan and line base and sides with baking paper. Sift flours, bicarbonate of soda, ginger and mixed spice into a large bowl. Add sugar and stir until well combined. Combine oil, golden syrup, egg and milk in a large jug. Add to dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. Pour mixture into pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes in pan before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely. Make icing: Sift icing mixture into a large bowl. Add orange rind and 1/4 cup orange juice. Stir until smooth, adding 3 to 4 teaspoons warm water if too thick. Spread icing over cake. Sprinkle with walnuts. Allow icing to set before slicing cake and serving.
