About this Bake

This is my version of the classic Victoria sponge that I specially designed for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. It is composed of three layers of butter sponge, strawberry jam, strawberry wine gel, and vanilla Italian buttercream. The sponges were flavoured with the zests of orange and lemon.

Top tip

To bake a nice flat and level sponge, reduce your baking temperature and bake your sponge for a long period of time. By doing this, you can avoid having to trim those "humps".
