Anyone for Cake?

This afternoon I baked a Victoria sandwich.

Anyone fancy a slice?

In Waitrose they sell ‘homemade’ ones for almost £4.00
I don’t have the strength to price up my version but it is certainly cheaper.

I used Stork and the all in one method so it was relatively quick to make.
Butter for the butter icing of course.

    we were out today for coffee and the darling man had a piece of victorian sandwich and it looked so georgous. I tasted some of the crumbs. It was georgous too. If you are in east sussex, go to the hen on the gate organic farm shop just outside 5 ashes and have a piece yourself.

  17. And I can be confident that your one tastes nicer. I've had the Waitrose version and it is VERY sickly - not at all what a Victoria Sponge ought to taste like.
    Thanks for your kind comments to Ginny and I over the last few weeks. It has been tough leaving the studio but the new phase starts from Wednesday.....
    Love Al x
