Frances made a wonderful Giant Toast & Marmalade Cake. Carefully cut the shape of a slice of toast from a traditional sponge. Place the slice, sponge side up under the toaster to achieve a golden and crisp colour and texture. Once it cools proceed to spread over butter cream and a liberal coating of Marmalade. The only thing left to do is decide which way to cut the slice, diagonally or straight? Either way tastes good, especially with a cup of tea.
