National Sponge Cake Day

Aching for some sponge cake baking? Break out the cake stand because August 23rd is National Sponge Cake Day!

This decadent dessert was first created in the mid-16th century by an Italian pastry chef for a Spanish lord. Since then, sponge cake has become a popular dessert item.

While there are many variations of the cake, one of the most popular is the Victoria sponge.

Named after Queen Victoria (who is said to have enjoyed a slice of sponge cake with her afternoon tea), the cake consists of raspberry jam and whipped cream sandwiched between two layers of sponge.

Whichever variation you prefer, be sure to bake (or buy) yourself a cake and celebrate!
