Tom's Birthday Cake


June is a month of celebration in my family: Tom's birthday, Maman's birthday, Father's Day, Maman and Papa's wedding anniversary... This means lots of cake is called for, and I left home last weekend owing lots of cake to everyone apart from T.


T's belated birthday and homecoming was celebrated with Lily Vanilli's vanilla sponge piled high with whipped cream and fresh berries. 


A sunny day, this buttery, fluffy sponge, a mug of ginger tea, and a plateful of local strawberries makes for a happy family celebration, which we will repeat many times before the summer is up.

    1. Thank you! I can't recommend Lily Vanilli's Victoria sponge recipe enough! All you need to add is some berries for the perfect cake!
