90th Birthday Cake

My Gramps is 90 this month and we had a party for him last weekend. I was tasked with making the cake and after several conversations with the man himself I found out what he really wanted was a Victoria Sponge. Of course, I had to make it a big more special than your average sponge. The cupcakes made it easy to share out and they were made gorgeous using piped buttercream icing and pearlised dust. They tasted as good as they looked because each cupcake had been filled with raspberry jam. You can see all the photos below:
