Queen Victoria Cake

Queen Victoria's favourite cake at tea-time is made up of two layers of fluffy sponge held together by cream and strawberry or rasberry jam. It is a cake that is very simple to make though a lot does depend on how well you know your oven. Apparently, Queen Victoria being the very pragmatic queen that she was, didn't see the need to make a variety of cakes at tea time. She simply had all her favourites combined - cake, strawberry jam and cream. All in one. How brilliant !

I had the Victorian sandwich cake for tea one afternoon at Greenwich, London and took a picture of it using my I- phone. It didn't look good due to the reflection of the cake cover but that improved with the application of the instagram apps.
