As part of National Baking Week, the team at CLH have been getting busy in the kitchen, putting their cooking skills to the test.

The lovely Rowena Bell, from the Sales & Customer Service department, has baked a delicious Victoria Sponge Cake. The great thing about this cake is that it’s quick, easy, and fun to make, making it perfect for bakers of all ages and abilities. As Rowena’s Victoria Sponge Cake was so delicious, we thought that we would share her recipe with you, so that you can give a try at home or with your residents.
