Hello wise cake bakers! I was out in a café today and had the most beautiful piece of Victoria sponge. It had cherry jam in it (which I bought a jar of while I was there) and a buttercream filling. I'd love to make a nice Victoria sponge myself and put the jam in.

Does anyone have a foolproof stunner recipe? Or any magic tips to make it come out beautifully? I need to go and buy some sponge tins too so any tips for these would be appreciated! smile Or oven can be used fan oven or conventional depending on setting so if one is better please let me know temp.

Thanks in advice and sending you a virtual slice! smile
