I made a normal Victoria Sponge recipe ad doubled it- 400g butter, 400g sugar, 400g self-raising flour, 8 eggs, 2 tablespoons of milk, 1 teaspoon of Baking Powder. I then divided this into 6 bowls and added lots of food colouring paste- they need to be vibrant colours so that when baked they still look like this-
I then decorated it with coloured sugar-covered chocolate balls and used my lettering tiles to emboss the message "Great TGA Bake Off", which i then iced over with blue writing icing-
Here's the finished cake, being sliced up and ready for sale at £2 a slice :-)
I used a white chocolate mud cake recipe (from planet cake) for the base, having previously tried to use a normal victoria sponge and it sinking under the weight when I tried to carve it. I bake a square cake, which I sliced in half, before stacking together with vanilla buttercream icing. I then wrapped the cake in clingfilm and stuck it in the freezer overnight.

All this snow has allowed me to get on with finishing off making my cards, writing them all, getting my Christmas shopping (including purchasing my CB SS gift) done online and even getting what has arrived already wrapped up and under the tree.
Here are the last of my cards for Christmas 2010!
Thanks for looking

I’ve been a busy bee this morning, making these two 2011 calendar easel cards!
One is for my mum and the other is for Martin’s mum. They follow the same theme of the birthday card I made last week for Martin’s dad’s birthday.
I really enjoyed making these and they were so simple- a couple of bird cut outs (from a marianne die) and lots of patterned paper, gems and flowers- easy
Thanks for looking!
Last night and earlier this week, I have been working on these two pails to fill with sweeties for Martin’s mum and sister for Christmas.
They are super hard to photograph and look way better in real life, but here is a flavour of what they look like!
