A Royal Weekend Cake (red, white & blue) May 18, 2018

It’s not the cake Prince Harry & Meghan Markle are having but it is a good cake for the special day.

Before I go on to the recipe, I’d like to welcome the many new follower’s that have joined my blog recently. Thank you so much x

 

Ingredients for the cake (basic victoria sandwich)

 

175g butter

175g caster sugar

3 eggs, beaten

175g self raising flour

pinch of salt

 

Ingerdients to decorate

 

300g light mascarpone

100g fat-free fromage frais

Raspberry jam

Fresh Strawberries, Raspberries & Blueberries

 

Method

 

Pre heat oven to 180C/gas 4.

Line 2 20cm/8 inch sponge tins with baking parchment.

Cream the butter & sugar together until the mixture is pale, light & fluffy.

Add the egg a little at a time, beating well after each addition.

Sift the flour & salt & add to the mixture, folding it in using a metal spoon or spatula.

Divide the mixture between the tins & smooth over.

Bake for 20-25 mins until risen, golden brown & just starting to shrink from the sides of the tins.

Remove from oven & leave to cool in the tins for 5 mins before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Stir the mascarpone into a bowl to soften it, then mix in the fromage frais.

Spread one of the cakes with raspberry jam followed by half of the mascarpone mixture, then top with the other cake.

Stir a little raspberry jam into the other half of the mascarpone mixture, swirl the mixture on top of the cake, the top it off with the strawberries, raspberries & blueberries.

Dust with icing sugar if liked to finish & enjoy

Tip: You will if you wanted, have enough to decorate a 3 tier cake
