Here are our cakes: Anne baked a Bakewell Thumbprint cake, based on a biscuit recipe with extra egg, 50% ground almond plus lots of lemon juice. Make holes with your thumb & pour in melted jam.

Jane made a traditional Victoria sponge with a twist. Bramble jelly filling & adding a little icing sugar & gelatin to set the cream to cope with a warm Bakewell day. One sank & one sindged ..but you would never guess it from the picture ..we are clever amateur bakers !!

Lemon, lime & orange drizzle cake from Karen, again designed to be heatproof for a hot picnic day ! Lots of juice squeezed on before icing.
