VE Day 75 Celebration

Fancy Victoria Sponge Cake

A Victoria Sponge is a British classic cake decorated with a rich buttercream icing and strawberries. I love to bake all things fluffy and yummy, and I decided to bake this cake to commenarate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day using simple wartime ingredients.

I have included a recipe for you to try out, so head over to Atlas Team for this teatime treat! You can replace cream/butter with delicious non-dairy alternatives to regular dairy. I made buttercream filling instead of whipped cream as it has a long shelf life.

For the buttercream filling:
85g butter, softened
175g icing sugar, sifted
Few drops vanilla extract
2 tbsp strawberry jam
Fresh strawberries (optional)
Icing sugar to dust

Enjoy this delicious classic cake!
