I did manage to get a few things done including making a big batch of broccoli soup to freeze and i couldn't resist, i had to try out my cake-making skills before my Wilton class - which is tomorrow btw! I decided to make a Victoria Sandwich because I have new scales for English recipes and wanted to give them a go. I also used to love this cake. The scales worked great but I'm not sure about the recipe I chose. After nibbling on the scraps, i thought the texture was OK but the taste was more eggy then i would have liked. I've had this happen on another recipe i tried with similar ingredients. I wonder if egg sizes are different in UK recipes. I think the most i can ask for is edible at this point though!
Jam oozing out the sides doesn't make for a very attractive cake. I topped the jam with Dream Topping.
