World Baking Day……Cakes Galore and my Vanilla, Strawberry & Rose Victoria Sandwich Cake
Are you brave enough to Bake Brave tomorrow, Sunday 19th May 2013? Just ONE more day to go, and you can choose from 100 wonderful cakes to make on the World Baking Day website here: World Baking Day 19th May – The Recipes. There are ONE HUNDRED fabulous cake recipes from skill level one ( Banana Muffins) to skill level one hundred (Cream Puff Cake) with lots of amazing bakes and cakes in-between……such as NUMBER SIXTY SIX, which is my Vanilla, Strawberry and Rose Cake!
Regular Lavender and Lovage readers will recognise this cake from last year…….Vanilla, Strawberry & Rose Victoria Sponge Cake for Lavender and Lovage’s 1st Year Blog Birthday! I am delighted to tell you that as a Baking Ambassador, this cake was accepted and added to the One Hundred Baking Brave Cakes for World Baking Day. Along with my cake are some cakes from friends of mine too, such as the magical Violet and Rose White Chocolate Fairy Cakes from my friend Choclette and Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Tiered Cake by my Tea Time Treats co-host Kate! OR, how about my friend Rosemary’s Chococcino Cake?
So, what will you bake tomorrow? If you need more inspiration I have added some more of my cake recipes at the end of this post……there are chocolate, citrus, sponge, gingerbread and summer berry cakes.
