Not convinced about the doilly tbh, I'd go for a vintage style cake stand.

No recipe on the form. I tell you it's only for women in the know

Deffo icing sugar on top - could be very fancy and stencil a design on top.

Do you think they could tell if it was homemade jam. Would I get extra points for that?

At our village fete the recipe used to be on the entry form for anything where it had to be specific

butter, homemade strawberry jam if possible, no idea about the others.

Thanks sugarfree. I knew there would be someone on here who has some VSC knowledge.

Have you ever entered one yourself?

Definitely butter and a doily,probably strawberry jam and no cream.The others not to sure tbh.

So I am taking the plunge and am going to enter a Victoria Sponge Cake into our local village show.

I'm not pussy-footing around with lemon curd. Oh no, straight into the Blue Riband event.

But I am a little afraid as I know there are rules. And these rules are not written down. If you have to ask, well you shoudn't be entering (well that's what I am sensing).

So I'm going to ask in happy annonymity here.

Size (18 or 20cm)?
Butter or marg?
What type of jam?
Cream filling?
Icing sugar or caster sugar on the top?
Doilly? (Sp?)

Seasoned village show entrants (or judges) your help gladly recieved.
