    This idea arose when we were asked to make some biscuits for our village's Royal Wedding street party. I had read somewhere that Prince William had a chocolate tray-bake for his stag do, so I reckoned we needed to follow his lead. The street party was great and these biscuits went down a treat.

    I got this recipe from Sharon, a flatmate at my university, who got it from her Gran. Her Gran was an amazing cook who never needed to weigh anything! Luckily, Sharon had made her write this one down. I know you can get these at nearly every bakery in the high street but they are relatively simple to make and well worth the effort.

    This is the traditional recipe for a Victoria sponge cake, a much loved English favourite. See footnote about weighing the eggs for best results. Serve with buttercream as in the recipe, or freshly whipped cream.
