A lovely revamp of an old school Victoria sponge.
Keep birthdays and parties delicious but junk free with this beauty.
This is a fabulous celebration cake and looks the part for any occasion, as well as dinner parties and afternoon tea! It was invented for a girl who doesn’t like cake – but is wild about berries and cream – this was a breakthrough! Honey is a delicate and delicious addition in sponge and with some vanilla cream, and tons of fresh fruit is way sweet enough.
