Ryan made a cake using a recipe based on one from wartime rationing.

 

It has very little fat in it (just 2 tablespoons of oil or margarine - we used oil), and no eggs. Plain flour is used with bicarbonate of soda and baking powder.

 

The cake was made by boiling together in a saucepan the raisins, various spices, sugar, oil and water, for 5 minutes then leaving to cool (Mum did this bit!) 

This was then mixed in with the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda until just combined, then poured into a tin then baked until risen and golden.

J made a Victoria sponge He decorated it with blueberries and filled it with strawberry jam and cream. He sprinkled icing sugar on the top. These give the cake the colours red, white and blue. J mixed the cake by hand so as to replicate making a cake in that era.

His cake is called Homecoming Victory Sponge.

Grace made a basic victoria sponge cake, she weighed and measured the ingredients and mixed it with an electric whisk. 

 

Once cooked and cooled she helped put the filling in  using jam and cream, she iced and decorated the top using strawberries, blueberries and raspberries to represent the colours of the Union Flag. The cake is called 'Our Union Flag'.
