Why just have one cake when you can have two sandwiched together? Sandwich cakes are an easy cake recipe
to start baking with – and they’re a perfect way to give your sponge extra flavour.
Bake two (or three, or four) sponges of your favourite cake and sandwich them together to create a baking masterpiece.
Cooking thiner, separate layers rather than a whole, hearty cake also ensures that your sponges cook quicker and more evenly, which is why sandwich cakes are perfect for first-time bakers or if you’re trying a new oven you’re not familiar with.
The filling is the fun part! You can sandwich your cakes together with jam, buttercream, fruit or even chocolate – the choice is yours! You can give your cake any flavour you wish by using a inventive filling or combination of ingredients.

Top tips for sandwich cakes:
- Make sure the sponges are made using the same size tin and have an equal share of the mixture.
- Allow sponges to cool before assembling.
- If the sponges have raised slightly, slice the top off one of the sponges to create an even base for the filling and top layer.
- Make sure your filling is not too runny as the sponges will slide.
