Classic Victoria Sponge Cake topped with vanilla buttercream

This is undoubtedly the biggest cake I've made to date as it is 10 inches in size. You can only imagine how long it took me to bake and decorate this monster of a cake but the again, this is what happens when you're baking for a worthy dental team. I made this cake as a token of my appreciation, a big thank you to all the dentists and dental nurses who looked after me, supported me and contributed so much during my 2 years of training within the NHS. I gained so much knowledge and will be forever grateful! You can never go wrong with a fluffy, vanilla infused Victoria Sponge cake; it is after all perfect for afternoon tea.
Victoria sponge is such an easy cake to make and it doesn't take long either. I used Mary Berry's RECIPE to make the perfect victoria sponge then went a little chocolate crazy with the decorating. The more I bake, the more I realise that baking really isn't that hard. All you need is a couple of ingredients and an imagination. As long as you have a vision, you can make it a reality.
