Time for tea and Victoria Sponge Cake

Is it time for tea? Oh I do love a Victoria sponge cake. One of my very first cakes that I made when I was first diagnosed with coeliac disease was a Victoria sponge. Some people just add jam to their Victoria sponge cake, but I use jam and cream. I also brought out the mad hatter teapot because I couldn’t enjoy my tea and cake without him!

A cake in a tin by Chacon Cakes!

I chose to have a chocolate cake base, with the first filling of vanilla cream and the second filling with chocolate ganache. The topping was white chocolate.
