Gemma’s spectacular Victoria Sponge cake was inch perfect with a nice layer of fresh cream (the group definitely voted for cream fillings in their Vicky sponge!!). And how she had the patience to add all those chopped nuts around the edges I’ll never know. All topped off with fresh summer fruit.
Last, but by no means least, was newcomer Petra’s beautiful torte. This consisted of inch perfect layers of blueberries soaked in red wine to intensify their flavour, a thin shortcrust pastry base, sponge and cream. All topped with fresh flowers and blueberries and again a painstaking collar of flaked almonds. If you ever want some inspiration for your next bake check out Petra’s website.
