A Very Berry Birthday!

Sometimes, there’s nothing better than a slice of victoria sponge… especially when you pimp it up with fresh berries and homemade berry coulis!       I’ve been using Lily Vanilli’s recipe again, but this is so easy to make yourself… just use any old sponge recipe, it could even be a box mix (but … Continue reading A Very Berry Birthday!
