Thank you, Queen Victoria.

For without her, we wouldn't have Victoria Sponge. And judging by just how many times I have baked it this year, I'm starting to think that it is now one of my core food groups. Above is my attempt at a fancy-pants Victoria Sponge for my little niece, Baby A. Enjoyed a little more by those of us this afternoon who were on solids as she is just 4 weeks old. Already a cutie - she has Mr M and the in-laws wrapped around her little finger. Can you tell the direction in which I started to stick the flowers down only to discover that the pattern wasn't going quite to plan? Whoops.

Hope you had a lovely weekend.
