Why just have one cake when you can have two sandwiched together? Sandwich cakes are an easy cake recipe to start baking with – and they’re a perfect way to give your sponge extra flavour.

Bake two (or three, or four) sponges of your favourite cake and sandwich them together to create a baking masterpiece.

Cooking
thiner, separate layers rather than a whole, hearty cake also ensures
that your sponges cook quicker and more evenly, which is why sandwich
cakes are perfect for first-time bakers or if you’re trying a new oven
you’re not familiar with.

The filling is the fun part! You can
sandwich your cakes together with jam, buttercream, fruit or even
chocolate – the choice is yours! You can give your cake any flavour you
wish by using a inventive filling or combination of ingredients.

Top tips for sandwich cakes:

  • Make sure the sponges are made using the same size tin and have an equal share of the mixture.
  • Allow sponges to cool before assembling.
  • If the sponges have raised slightly, slice the top off one of the sponges to create an even base for the filling and top layer.
  • Make sure your filling is not too runny as the sponges will slide.
