Let’s talk about this Strawberry Victoria Cake!  It is a delicious sponge cake that is said to have been a favorite of Queen Victoria’s.  I made this for a dear friend upon request and have since tweaked the recipe to add some additional moisture.  

This cake plates beautifully, and goes so well with a late brunch!

  Whipped Cream:


  1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

  7.  Once mixed together separate evenly into the 2 prepared cake pans
  8.  Bake in the preheated oven until the middle Springs back when touched, approximately 20 minutes.
  9.  Remove from the oven cool in the cake pan for 5 minutes then turn out onto a wire cooling rack and cool the cake completely
  10.  Slice the cake in half. place the fresh whipped cream and the fruit of your choice in between the two layers 

I served this with fresh strawberries on top. I also like to garnish this with strawberries that I have dipped in melted white chocolate. 

This cake is very easily dressed up for special occasions!

Another favorite cake for special occasions is my caramel poke cake.
