Classic Cake Time

Birthdays and cakes, is there a better combination of celebration and food? Even more so when the cake in question is a home-baked classic to bring back¬†nostalgic¬†memories of childhood treats and blowing out candles. Add seasonal sweet sharp raspberries into the mix and I’m in heaven.

That’s why I went for the Mary Berry (she of the Great British Bake Off) Victoria Sponge¬†. A nice precise recipe to follow which is very particular about something as simple as making a vanilla sponge. The extra precision pays off with a light fluffy sponge you can smother with jam and fruit. Served with a side of cream (none in the cake to satisfy the purists) makes for a great birthday cake.
