Good old Tuesday eh? Well - I know lots, maybe even most of you lovely readers do enjoy a good piece of cake, and this cute little cake right here I made for
momentous occasion deserves more recognition than just one little post photo right?
Well I thought so anyway, so today I thought I'd share with you a few more photos and the recipe, just in case you fancied getting your bake on this week!
Plus I thought this little beauty would be the perfect little Valentine's treat for your beau - it's an easy one to do and looks stunning, so definitely give it a good! I promise your partner will be super impressed!
So - the little fellow was a classic Victoria sponge - with strawberry jam and whipped cream with vanilla in the centre, iced with a meringue buttercream frosting! I simply mixed a little jam into the frosting for that slightly pink flecked effect!
You can find the recipes I used here:
If you ask me - I think he turned out pretty fantastic! I actually took him into work the next day for the guys to share...needless to say it disappeared in a matter of minutes!
I urge you to get into baking, it
fun - especially when it comes to the icing and decoration. Make good old Mary Berry proud - because I'm trying my damnedest, and I must say I'm becoming a dab hand - no soggy bottoms here!
