Wow, I didn't realise how many things I'd not blogged about until I was going back through my photos from the start of the year. My birthday is in January so I'm quite late with this post, but having seen the photos, I had to share.
I love victoria sponge cake, it's possibly my favourite kind of cake. I don't know why, it just is. Strangely, I'd never made one before so I decided, for my birthday, to give it a go. Unfortunately, having made my sponge, it snowed. Meaning that I couldn't get to work and therefore had a whole sponge that I'd have to eat myself. I didn't manage it and I'm ashamed to say some ended up in the bin. I waited until the snow had gone and tried again.
Now, I'm not sure what I made was really a traditional victoria sponge, given that it was topped with cream, but it looks so pretty, and it tasted great although I remember thinking I'd like to try and get the sponge fluffier.
