Victoria Sponge



Ever since I read Nigella Lawson's "How To Be a Domestic Goddess" I have wanted to make this Victoria Sponge cake. I'm not sure why it attracted me so, because everything in her book looks delicious! I think it is because the name of the cake sounds so British, and I love anything to with England. My dream vacation would be an extended trip throughout the whole of England. Wouldn't it be awesome to see those ancient structures in person! Well maybe if I win the lottery someday : )

Anyhow, back to the cake. I decided to try it today; however at the time of this post I haven't tried it yet. We were all too full after dinner so we decided to wait until after church to indulge! It looks pretty though.

Oh your cake is BEAUTIFUL!! I also love anything 'England'! Did you hear the 'Victoria' magazine is going to be published again? That's one of the places I get my 'England' fix. :o) You have a nice blog!
