Who loves the show Victoria? The Crown? Make these easy Mini Victorian Tea Cakes the next time you watch!
Oh my gosh! I just found out about these two shows, and I am hooked! Finally, some good television that isn’t a reality show. I also love history too, so everytime I am done watching I look to see if it happened or not. My husband and I also watch these shows together too.
Well, last Monday night, some friends and I got together to watch the Season 2 Finale of Victoria, already I am not ready for a finale now. I thought of making some tea cakes to go along with the show, and these came out awesome!
These tea cakes are similar to something that I used to make at a country club that I used to work for before our girls came along. The cake is a light airy sponge cake filled with your filling of choice like your favorite jam, pastry cream, pastry cream topped with fresh fruit, or even chocolate ganache. The cakes are then glazed with an apricot jam, to help keep the cake moist and to give it shine.
I brought these Mini Victoria Tea Cakes over for our viewing party and my friends and I enjoyed them as we watched the Season 2 Finale of Victoria.
