Raspberry Jam Tart Birthday Cake Raspberry Jam Tart Birthday Cake

Raspberry Jam Tart Birthday Cake

Its my husband's 81st Birthday today.  Its also the anniversary of the day we first met in person.  I always tease him and tell him I am the best Birthday Present he ever received.  Most of the time he would agree with me . . .  unless we are in the car. Then it becomes quite debatable. He says he doesn't drive.  He just steers.
Two of Todd's favourite things are Victoria Sponge Cakes and Raspberry Jam Tarts, well any jam tart really  . . . he just loves anything with jam in it.
You know how you create ideas in your mind of things you want to do . . .  and you picture them all out and in your mind they come out looking fantastic . . .  but in reality, they don't even come close to touching what you had envisioned them as being"
This is one of those things.  Every time I look at it I laugh.  In my mind I saw this beautiful Victoria sponge with two layers of butter cream along with a layer of sweet jam in the middle. ??
Two ticks  . . . one for the Victoria Sponge  . . .  two for the butter cream   . . .  and wait a third  . . . ? for the jam, raspberry jam. Bonne Maman, only the best for my man.
Normally I don't put butter cream on top of a Victoria Sponge, just in the middle. The top is usually dusted lightly with either icing sugar or caster sugar  . . .
But today I had the idea in mind that I was going to decorate the top with raspberry jam tarts, again Bonne Maman ones (I could have made from scratch, but was stretched for time).  I wanted to put a layer of vanilla butter cream on the top as well, to hold the jam tarts in place.

I decorated each jam tart with a small dollop of butter cream and a sprinkle of hundreds and thousands cake sprinkles  . . .  and then placed them lovingly all around the outside of the cake.  I had an extra one and so I cut it up into little bits to decorate around the candle in the middle of the cake.
I just used one big fat candle in a tiny Bonne Maman jam jar as a holder. (Bonne Maman figured big in my cake plans today!)
You would have to have a really big cake to sport 81 candles, so I reckoned one big fat one was as good as 81 smaller ones.
Its not the prettiest Birthday Cake in the world.  Not near as pretty as I had envisioned when I was dreaming it up . . .
But it didn't really matter because Todd loved it . . . two of his favourite things . . . plus all of the love I put into it.  He was quite happy with it. He's not hard to please. 

The cake itself is a really good cake, with a lovely moist crumb and beautiful texture . . .
Homemade Vanilla Butter cream Frosting"  You can't go wrong. Its delicious too . . .
Bonne Maman Jams, next to homemade, they are the best in my opinion . . . .
And their jam tarts on their own are also rather moreish . ...
