A gorgeous Golden Sparkle Celebration Cake which is very simple to make, and would be a wonderful cake to present to anyone celebrating 50 years of marriage, or maybe even just a birthday or some other special occasion.
The Great British Bake Off is back!!!! Yaaaay *does a happy dance* ! Of course this means that it also sees the return of the Great Bloggers Bake Off (#GBBOBloggers2016) *does another happy dance*. No doubt by now we will all have seen the first episode, and met the new contestants and seen some scrummy cakes in the process (I love cake week – my favourite!).
It is my best friend Kimberly’s 40th birthday on the 30th (her and my Dad share the same birth date and he will be 60 this year), and last Saturday she had a party to celebrate this milestone in her life. She of course wanted a cake and she very kindly asked me, even though I was going to offer anyway, if I would make her one. Well of course I would for one thing I LOVE making cakes and secondly I LOVE Kimberly – she and I have been best friends since approximately October 1986, and she has been such a wonderful friend so of course I was going to say yes! We had a little chat and we decided upon a layered sponge with different shades of green inside, as green is her favourite colour. I did originally intend to make a taller cake, but we opted to make some matching cupcakes to save serving and cutting up the big cake for the guests.
