Sponge cake drops

Big man came home from school last week asking for cakes to take to school. They are having a fair he goes on to say, and I need to take cakes to sell so I can make lots of money. The money is going to WWF so our class can buy some animals. We are GETTING a penguin and an orange tang(orangu-tan)!! He shouts with excitement!

Ha ha, sorry but I couldn’t help but laugh…. where are you going to keep them then? In your class room? Er…..i’m not sure. Was his reply. We had to go through the whole shebang of why we couldn’t have these animals in our country and the endangered species thing all over again. Big man was obviously confused as they only just studied endangered animals in class. I again explained the process of adopting an animal and how you get pictures posted to you and the money goes to help the animal not to actually buy it! Eventually he agrees it’s a great idea and that we should get on with  baking some cakes to raise some money. So what to make…

Our list;
not fairy cakes because everyone does those
jam tarts
crispie cakes
traybake to slice up
sponge drop cakes sandwiched together
swiss roll to slice up

Oh jeeez this list was endless so after much debating we decided on sponge drops.

I’m not going to write a recipe for sponge mixture, there are tons on the internet for you to choose from. Drop spoonfuls of sponge cake mix onto baking sheets. Bake for 6 mins in oven temp 200°C/180°C with fan/350°F/gas 6

When cooked, cool on baking rack, sandwich together with jam and buttercream. Mmmm nice. If I had time I’d make ….chocolate ones 😉
