Lime sponge with white chocolate and coconut frosting

The sunny weather has made me feel very tropical, so I decided to make a cake that reminds me of the tropics.  I made a lime sponge cake `loaf style' and topped it with white chocolate and coconut frosting.

Mini Victoria sponges

Mini Victoria sponges are a real treat and look so delicious on a vintage glass cake stand. I treated myself to a mini sandwich baking tray from Lakeland and would highly recommend it. I made these classic cakes for my `step-sister' Chloe's birthday yesterday.

Rock-cakes an English classic

Great warm out of the oven with a cup of tea. I made these rock-cakes using a family recipe, from my mother in law.  Try cooking them yourself. The recipe can be found in the recipe section of my blog.
