Making a Battenberg cake

Never would bother but for the complete lack of Battenberg cakes in Aussie supermarkets, believe me!

That aside I wouldn’t be able to eat that because I’d think it would be (mostly) blueberry flavoured. Freaked out a bit once when my family made that purple mash for Sunday tea that Jamie Oliver once championed. There might be a technical term for this but, as Moloko once not particularly famously sang, I am not a doctor.

Battenberg/burg is tops though - good choice @1101010, very surprised it’s not a thing down Under!

Layer it up and stick it in the oven.

I’ve got a mental image of Paul Hollywood saying this in a demo on Bake Off and that’s not going anywhere any time soon.

We’re watching 2020’s Bake Off and Laura’s “fucking hell” was not beeped out in our stream. Maybe it’s gone like a Scorsese gangster flick since it moved to C4

I don’t like marzipan.

I’m weirdly invested in this cake failing. Must be in a really bad mood that i’m not aware of yet

I certainly hope your daughter’s bedtime involves you finishing and photographing a battenberg cake.

He’s got a whole dictionary to read to her first.
