Bye bye 2012, 52/52 Classic Sponge

31 Dec

So I wasn’t as good at keeping up my cake or bake weekly challenge as we were at making a monthly munching scheme happen! I have kept up the baking and a good deal of it has been sold for charity!

This year we have moved house, I got a pony, did a sports events that I would never have though possible and went on an amazing safari. Did I mention that the safari was on horseback? All in all an amazing year. So I don’t feel too bad about my baking lapses!

Just bad enough for one final post. A Victoria Sandwich with a recipe from the grand Dame of baking herself, Mary Berry. It’s nestling in my cake tin, waiting for tea time.

Really pleased with its appearance, it’s glistening with caster sugar like a jewel. The ruby red of my home made strawberry jam peaks out from the sides and the cakes are a lovely gold. Hopefully the taste will live up to the looks!

Roll on 2013 and some occasional blogs!
