Some say you can’t beat tucking into a slice of Victoria sponge. We couldn’t agree more. Deceptively simple, the Victoria sandwich features two distinctive vanilla sponge layers with a light, airy buttercream and jam in the middle – raspberry is a common favourite. With a classic cup of English tea, this is a quintessentially English cake choice adored by those aged nine to 99. This cake was a favourite of royalty. So enamoured was Queen Victoria with the cake that in 1861 it was named in her honour. The origins of this sponge cake dates all the way back to the 15th century – if that’s not a testament to its deliciousness, we’re not sure what is!
Rich, gooey caramel, a bed of buttery shortbread and a heavenly layer of Belgian milk chocolate – the Millionaire’s shortbread is a winning classic recipe with Scottish origins. Try our award-winning caramel shortbread slices today.
And where would Great British cake cuisine be without the carrot cake? It’s adorned with chopped walnuts, buttercream frosting and packed with grated carrot. These ingredients don’t immediately jump to mind as the perfect cake mix, but somehow it works. It’s one that customers come back to time and again.
