Stunning 6-tier Victoria sponge which makes for a perfect rustic wedding cake.

2 x 15cm (6 inch) cake

125g butter

125g caster sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

125g self-raising flour, sifted

1 tbsp milk

2 x 20cm (8 inch) cake

225g butter

125g caster sugar

4 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

225g self-raising flour, sifted

2 tbsp milk

2 x 25cm (10 inch) cake

500g butter

500g caster sugar

8 eggs

1 tbsp vanilla extract

500g self-raising flour, sifted

4 tbsp milk


2 x 454g jars of strawberry jam

600ml double cream, whipped

250g raspberries

250g blueberries

250g strawberries

Roses, optional

Icing sugar, for dusting

Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4.

Grease and line all 6 springform cake tins.

Each double layer cake must be made and baked separately following these steps:

Beat together butter and sugar.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating between each addition.

Add the vanilla extract and beat.

Add the self-raising flour and mix well.

Add the milk and combine.

Spoon the batter into the cake tins and bake until golden and cooked through.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool on wire racks.

The 15cm (6 inch) cake tin should take around 20 minutes, the 20cm (8 inch) cake tin should take around 35 minutes and the 25cm (10 inch) cake tin should take around 45 minutes.

Once the cakes have cooled, begin assembling the tiers, starting with the 25cm (10 inch) cake on the bottom. Spread a generous layer of jam and whipped cream sandwiched between each layer.

Spread the very top layer with a little whipped cream to help the frit to stick.

Once the layers are in place begin decorating with the berries, adding the rose heads at this point, if using.

Lastly, sprinkle with icing sugar.
