I made this cake the first time as part of fulfilling my promise to make all the cakes which feature in my first novel, Art and Soul which is out now! If you like reading uplifting contemporary romance, you can get your own copy on Amazon.
This time it’s simple old school sponge cake with water icing and sugar hundreds and thousands. This cake is a childhood classic (it brings back memories of the sponge with sprinkles they used to serve in my school canteen) and the favourite of the novel’s second-most important character: Charlie. As if that weren’t enough, it eventually becomes an important plot point. Who knew cake could be so influential? 🙂
