it was one of my close friend’s 21st birthday yesterday and she is a massive fan of Doctor Who (aren’t we all), so I made her this “bow ties are cool” themed birthday cake. I quite liked how it turned out and really enjoyed making it!
I used a sponge cake recipe I’ve been using for a while now, it’s always proved itself to hold up after I’ve wrestled with it a bit.
175g castor sugar
175g plain flour
1tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
I usually fill with either strawberry or raspberry jam and buttercream for a classic Victoria Sponge.
