Friday Favorites: Strawberry Victoria Sponge

Strawberry Victoria Sponge from Marks & Spencer


This Friday I am dreaming about my favorite dessert in the world- the Strawberry Victoria Sponge from Marks & Spencer.  My sister and I discovered this ultimate indulgence on our first visit together to London, and it truly was love at first bite.  The layers of spongy cake are moist and buttery, and are spread with rich whipped cream and sweet strawberry jam.  This is simply the best cake I have ever tasted.  It is now tradition to search for a Marks & Spencer food hall on any visits to the UK.  On my most recent trip to Ireland, I dragged Have Teacup Will Travel not once, but twice across a city to buy one of these treats.  We even carried the second one around all day just to eat it later that night in our hotel room!  The truth is, this is not only delicious to eat, but it reminds me of fun vacations spent with people I love.  What is sweeter than that?
