    This is just a basic victoria sandwich, where did the name ‘maisie cake’ come from?

    • the name Maisie i believe comes from the fact that maisie fantaisie uses this recipe. the basic ingredients are the same as the victoria sponge and a lot of other recipes but the ratios are different which results in a more dense cake that will take the weight of fondant and carving better
