Today's Adventures in Baking: The Victoria Sandwich
September 16, 2016 8:34pm CST
Today, I managed to bake a cake from scratch, something that always terrifies me. The recipe is from the Great British Baking Show, a recent favourite of mine, and this was my first attempt at making a Victoria Sandwich. It's pretty simple, a genoise buttercake, in two layers, with strawberry jam in between. Confectioner's sugar on top to finish it, and to really push it over the top, add whipped cream. It turned out a little bit too dry for me, but on the whole, not too bad. J turned his nose up at it, but that doesn't bother me much. Just means more cake for me!
