Hi guys 🖑
So I took to Twitter last week to see what you guys would like to see in my next blog post, And food won!
This coincided with the making of my Mum’s birthday cake, her birthday was on sundayy, so I thought that, that could be the focus of this blog post because, who doesn’t love a good cake let’s be honest 👐
I used a Mary Berry recipe from the BBC food website, although she isn’t on the GBBO anymore (still hurts) she is still the queen of baking 👑
- 4 free-range eggs
- 225g/8oz caster sugar, plus a little extra for dusting the finished cake
- 225g/8oz self-raising flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 225g/8oz baking spread, margarine or softbutter at room temperature, plus a little extra to grease the tins
Let’s take a look!
My sponges aren’t very neat, but they tasted good!!
Next up! Jam & buttercream…
Voila! Mum chose fudge pieces and white chocolate as her toppings…
The finished cake, it’s quite a beast. Not perfect but I was really pleased with the rise of the sponges and the taste.
Top tip: Let the sponges cool before pulling off the baking parchment from the bottom of the sponges!
Mary Berrys Perfect Victoria Sponge!
Until next time,
