Thank you, ltg..... I'll tell you a tale about my cake making. A few years ago whilst entering my sweet peas in a village show, I decided to try my luck by entering a Victoria Sponge & raspberry jam in the home produce section. To my surprise I won first prize for both entries.
You would't believe the resentment from the lady exhibitors, not a single well done or congratulations from any of them and it's certainly something I never tried again.
Btw, my late mum was head cook in a top restaurant, so I kinda grew up with it.
