  1. Step 1:

    Pre heat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°, gas mark 4). Grease and line 2 x 8” round cake tins.

  2. Step 2:

    Cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla seeds for about 10 minutes until pale and fluffy - this is key to the recipe so it is worth doing this bit well!

  3. Step 3:

    Add the eggs, one by one, beating well between each one.

  4. Step 4:

    Carefully fold in the flour and salt ensuring you don’t lose any of the air in the mixture. It may need loosening so use a little milk until you get a dropping consistency.

  5. Step 5:

    Split the mixture into two equal sized portions into the prepared tins and place in the oven for 40-45 minutes until the sponge is golden brown and springs back to the touch, or until a skewer comes out clean. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

  6. Step 6:

    To make the filling lightly whip the double cream with the icing sugar until you get a soft peak, then stir in the mango purée.

  7. Step 7:

    Spread half of this evenly over the cooled sponge cakes. Scatter over the fresh mango pieces and sandwich the cake together.

  8. Step 8:

    Dust the cake with icing sugar. For additional decoration place some of the remaining cream into a piping bag, and using a big star tip crown the cake with stars on the edge and place a piece of mango on each tip. Serve immediately.
