Her Majesty's Cake by Nadiya Hussain
About the bake
Great British Bake Off's Nadiya Hussain's very same recipe she used to create her incredible masterpiece to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday. A light, dreamy sponge with a fresh citrus hints, with both oranges and lemons bringing the zing. The orange makes a cameo in the sweet buttercream and drizzle too giving it a fun, fruity twist to your classic Victoria sponge recipe. Subtle lavender coloured fondant icing delicately drips down this celebration cake, a technique that is simple but effective to achieve. Each bite of this cake is equally as tasty as it is beautiful.
