    This cake is a deep red colour but tastes like chocolate sponge cake! My niece made her wedding cake with this recipe and it went down a storm!

    This cake looks good, but it tastes even better! It is best to have two round cake tins of the same size, but if you don't, you can bake one base after the other.

    A wonderfully moist gingerbread that's full of flavour. This gingerbread is spiced with ginger and cinnamon and sweetened with golden syrup. Enjoy on its own or with custard or a dollop of cream.
