Whether baked for a picnic, buffet, afternoon-teatime treat or simply just because, the individual portion size of these Victoria Sponge Cakes with Chantilly Cream & Raspberry Jam, Red Currant & White Chocolate Fruit Tarts with Creme Patisserie and Caerphilly & Leek Vegetarian Sausage Rolls are sure to please.
How time flies when you're having fun! That certainly has been the case this past ten weeks whilst baking along with GBBO and the Great Bloggers Bake Off with Jenny over at Mummy Mishaps. It seems such a short time ago that I attempted to make a batch of vegetarian Lime Jaffa Cakes for week 1, and now, all of a sudden, the final episode (for this series and on the beeb) has been aired crowning Candice Brown the winner of the class of 2016.
As we know, the theme for the final was 'Fit for a Queen', marking Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday year. The three finalists were challenged with making a three tiered meringue crown in the signature, a classic Victoria Sponge in the technical and a massive 49 item bake suitable for a royal picnic in the showstopper consisting of a chocolate celebration cake, puff pastry sausage rolls, mini quiche, savoury scones and fruit & custard tarts.
