This show stopping sponge cake is sure to raise a smile this Mother’s Day, and perfect for sharing with friends and family

There are lots of ways to show your mum how much she means to you. From flowers and boxes of chocolates to breakfast in bed or her favourite dinner, you’ll know what she'd prefer. That said, regardless of all the lovely ways we like to spoil our mothers, it often seems like they value none of them as much as our company, and the company of loved ones. Indulge your mum this Mother’s Day with a gathering of all her nearest and dearest around a sweet treat, like this tumbling tea time cake. Perfect for bringing together her closest friends and family, serve this all-butter Victoria iced sponge with a light, fragrant afternoon tea blend in fine bone china – only the best for Mum! Oh, and don’t forget the icing on the cake – a personalised message.
