I think no cake will ever be judged as much as a cake made by the only man in a mainly female playgroup!
It was my turn to make the cake this week - luckily I nailed it!
I wanted a show stopper to impress and kept thinking of different cakes I could make. Then I decided that simple was best and went for a simple Victoria Sponge Sandwich.
The sponge was made using the normal recipe (8oz of flour, 8oz of sugar and 8oz of butter, four eggs and a teaspoon of baking powder) then I added butter icing and homemade damson jam to the middle and dusted the top with icing sugar.
A simple cake that everyone likes, sometimes you can't beat a classic.
Everyone was very complimentary!
What cake would you have made (I need ideas for when it's my turn again!)?
