{3 Tier} Victoria Sponge Cake

Hey Everyone,

First off … I want to apologise, I know I’m 2 days late to post. Unfortunately, I’ve been quite busy lately with work and redecorating my room.

So for everyone who follows me on Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter or Facebook, you’ll all know it was Jays birthday yesterday. So as a birthday treat I decided I would make him his favourite cake … which is of course a Victoria sponge cake.

I used one of Mary Berry’s recipes – http://loveeatsleepfood.com/?p=2175.

This cake is fairly easy to make if anyone would be interested in recreating it for themselves.

Due to the fact that I had small cake tins, I decided I was going to make it 3 tiered as well as using fresh strawberries. Which was the only criticism jay had, that he wasn’t a fan of the fresh strawberries. Hey, Ho … constructive criticism can be helpful.

The preparation time for the cake is 15 minutes, as well as the actually cooking time being 15 minutes.

For Cake
225g – softened butter
225g – caster sugar
4 large – eggs
225g – self-raising flour

11/2 level tsp – baking powder

1 tsp – good quality vanilla extract

For decoration
50ml – double cream
Icing sugar to taste
1/2 tsp – vanilla extract
Chopped strawberries (One box was more than enough)
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Fan. Line and grease three 6″ sandwich tins.
2. In a stand mixer beat the sugar and butter until smooth. Add the flour and baking powder until thoroughly blended. Divide the mixture evenly between the tins and level out.
3. Bake for about 15 minutes or until well risen and the tops of the cakes spring back when lightly pressed with a finger. Leave to cool in the tins for a few minutes then turn out, peel off the parchment and finish cooling on a wire rack.
For decoration
1. In a stand mixer place the cream, icing sugar and vanilla extract and whip until forms stiff peaks.
2. Once the cakes are cool. Place a third of the cream on top of one of the cake layers add come chopped strawberries then repeat until all the two layers are completed.
I also added some 1/2 cut strawberry’s on the top of the cake as well as a sprinkle of icing sugar.
