If there is one cake you need to master, it’s the classic Victoria Sponge. As a British staple this cake can be wheeled out on any occasion and is guaranteed to receive a warm reception every single time. The simple base flavours make it the perfect cake to really experiment with, perhaps swap out vanilla for a chocolate and peppermint sponge or swap the whipped cream filling for a silky smooth chocolate ganache and really make it your own.
One of the great things about a Victoria Sponge is just how versatile it is; whether it is a birthday cake, an afternoon tea treat or dessert, the Victoria Sponge can be wheeled out on many occasions and once you’ve mastered it you can believe us when we say you’ll be asked for it time and time again. There is nothing more satisfying than a well made Victoria Sponge after all!
All you need to make this tasty afternoon treat is a mixing bowl, a whisk, a sieve, two cake tins, a palette knife and a flour sifter for your icing sugar.
