Mini Victoria Sponge Cakes with Buttercream & Jam

To make my small Victoria Sponge cakes, I use the red Pyrex Silicone Muffin Cases from Tesco which do the job brilliantly and are really easy to squish up in my kitchen cupboard. ┬áSometimes the kids don’t want a slice of cake, and if I put some into lunch boxes, it’s easier when the cakes are individual. ┬áKids also want to have things that look different from their friends who have their cakes in traditional paper cases, and I’m happy to oblige.

These fairly plain and standard cakes are firm favourites with my boys and so easy to make as well.
