Boldly British Layered Cake
Happy Jubilee Weekend Everyone! I hope you've all had a good day and enjoyed the celebrations despite the weather!
We've posted plenty of Beautifully British ideas over the past week so I think this last one will leave you with enough inspiration until the next event calls for some red and blue! The Olympics perhaps?!
I made this layered sponge cake to take to a celebratory lunch at our friends' place today. I used jam in between the layers, a refreshing change from sometimes-too-sweet buttercream icing.
I just made the one cake and then cut it with a cake leveller - I used blackberry and strawberry jam so it looked red and blue when we sliced into it. I covered the cake in a layer of jam to stop the crumbs from getting into the icing. Just a spatula was used to spread the thick buttercream. I then chucked on some red and blue fruit to the top and some grated white chocolate. Deelish with a cuppa!
