I was planning to do a Victoria sponge, but one of the sponges was sadly undercooked in the middle. I have cut a circle of the undercooked area of the cake, so now I have a sponge; and a sponge ring.

Shall I just put the ring on top and spoon some whipped cream and strawberries in? Or will that look crap?sad

Sounds good to me but I’m more of an eater than a baker.

Cake cream and strawberries - what’s not to like?! grin

Was it meant to be a cake cake or dessert?

If dessert, you could make a sort of trifle.

If a cake cake then what you propose will be fab

Fill the ring with shop bought ice cream then cover with fruit and cream. 😋

I'd probably serve the one good layer as a flan and keep the ring to eat later with more cream. But I'm greedy. blush

I am super proud!!!! (The red streaks in the sponge are marbled raspberry purée, they are supposed to be there grin)
