BerryWorld Strawberry Cream Victoria Sponge

BerryWorld Strawberry Cream Victoria Sponge anyone? Hello friends, so how are you today? Cake anyone? Named after Queen Victoria herself, there are few cakes that can beat this all-time classic recipe. 

You can spread strawberry jam (turning it into a jam sponge) or whipped vanilla cream on the base of one sponge cake as a filling, or both.

This classic recipe is also one of my favourites.

    I'm tempted to make this this weekend for my husband's first father's day. Strawberries are amazing at the moment.
