So heres something to make up for all the vegetarian food Ive sent your way lately, just to be clear I absolutely stand by all my veg. food and it was delicious. Were headed home next week and then soon after Baby Boys school re-opens so lots and lots to do before we leave, that means I really cant afford to chit chat much, but a little I will.
I love desserts that have a beautiful story as much as I love creating entremets or other desserts from scratch. And this Victoria sponge cake makes no exception. Having British origins, it seems that this cake was named after Queen Victoria who was introduced to it by Anna, the Dutchess of Bedford and it soon became one of her favorite cakes. In fact, Queen Victoria is quite famous for her sweet tooth and historics say she used to order dozens of cakes and cookies to be sent to her palace every week. So it’s safe to say that she absolutely loved cake!
