What is a Victorian sponge cake and what is a butter sponge cake , which one does funkybake use ?

We use butter based sponges as they are more dense and firm hence providing a more stable and easy to decorate foundation for the cake.
There is a difference between butter cakes and Victorian sponges

– butter cakes are dense and have less volume hence forth lesser air pockets than a Victorian sponge
– lesser air pockets imply a different characteristic in the way they soak , whether the medium be milk or sugar syrup ( incase of Victorian sponge its sugar syrup )

The cakes made with butter look dry but are moist , a dry cake in comparison would be chalky and crumbs would fall off as you take bites of it

Things we cannot guarantee are color accuracy and figure detailing as everything is hand made and the colors are mixed and made ourselves .
