Everyone has to start somewhere and when it comes to baking this is no exception! If you want to try your hand at baking but don’t really know where to start, the best thing to do is try the recipes on the easier end of the spectrum before diving into the deep end with some of the trickier things to make!
If you are looking for some great beginner cake ideas, here are a few good one to get you going…
Classic Victoria Sponge – One of the favourite cakes, this is not only simple to make but popular and delicious! Fill it with strawberry and jam and buttercream laced with vanilla extract to guarantee a tasty teatime treat that nobody will be able to resist!
Banana Bread – This is a great way to use up any bananas that you may have that are a little past their best, as this works particularly well with over ripe bananas. As well as being delicious it is also a great way to get more fruit into your diet too, so is a perfect all-rounder!
Chocolate Fudge Cake – Similar in the method to a Victoria sponge, but with plenty of chocolate added in! You can buy ready made chocolate fudge topping from supermarkets too if you want to bake a quick and easy cake that everyone will love! If you do have more time, make your own chocolate fudge topping if you like.
