Victoria Sponge Cake

A traditional English Victoria Sponge Cake I made to celebrate the Royal Wedding. The cake was decorated with printable little Union Jack flags that can be downloaded from my blog. I've also included downloadable flags for England, USA & Canada that you can use to celebrate St. Georges Day, Independence Day and Canada Day.

Stuffed Vanilla Pear Jam Scones

As soon as I tasted this batch of Pear Vanilla Jam I couldn't wait to use it in a recipe. For some reason I thought wow wouldn't this taste great inside a scone. I'm not joking. I really did think that after I tasted it for the third time. And I have never had a stuffed scone before so this would be a kitchen adventure for me.

In its simplest - and I believe, authentic - form, it's basically jam and cream sandwiched between 2 layers of sponge. But clearly, there is no harm adding some strawberry slices like I did. They give a fruity punch to an otherwise simple cake.
