Kitchenways Royal Bake Competition – and Union Flag Cake Recipe #FitForAQueen

To celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday Kitchenways launched a fantastic competition all about bakes fit for the Queen. With the competition you can win a dream break in London or runner up prizes of Kitchenways gift vouchers.

I love a competition, and I love baking, so when I heard about this chance to win I had to go and get my bake on! I wanted to create something that the children would love that also had a royal twist and in the end we decided on a Union Jack Cake – a sponge cake topped with Union Flag fruit.

If you would like to make this cake for yourself, here’s the recipe – I worked from my Never Fail Cupcake recipe – great if you’re not that good at making a sponge!
