I just love this spotty piggy bank; make it in any colour of your choice. Don’t think this is a cake just for children, adult’s fall for its charm too...

Ingredients

For the Victoria Sponge

  • 280 g unsalted butter, really soft, diced, plus more for the tin
  • 280 g self-raising flour

Method

To Bake

Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 170°C/350°F/gas mark 4.

Butter the cake tin very well indeed. Place a piece of baking parchment over the hole in the base of one of the semi-spherical halves. Make a stand of twisted alum
