Raspberry Victoria Cake

Raspberry Victoria Cake - Crumbs and Corkscrews

I love my job, not only do I get to be surrounded by all things sweet and sugary, I also get to meet some fabulous and extremely talented people, and I’m lucky to call some my friends!

The wedding industry can be a funny old place; it’s organised chaos and everyone pitching in, but it can also be a quiet and solitary place, especially when you’re working on a cake until all hours of the morning. Whilst I thrive on the manic spring and summer wedding season, as the madness calms down it’s nice sit down and grab a coffee with friends.

I thought for morning coffee, and because I’d squeezed in a little last minute order, that I’d create something classic and timeless, just like Chris’ styling artistry. I’d grabbed some raspberries when I was out and about, and there was raspberry preserve leftover from the white chocolate scones, so a Raspberry Victoria it was. And, just like Professor Albus Dumbledore, I’m a raspberry jam fan especially when it comes to Victorias. I think the tartness of the fruit cuts through the sweetness of the vanilla sponge and buttercream, more than strawberries.
