While my little boy was watching his children’s TV channel, a show called Nuzzle and Scratch (A British children’s television programme about two eponymous puppet alpacas) was on and their favourite food is sponge fingers. The point of this post is that the two puppet alpacas had decided to make a cake with sponge fingers. The odd thing is the actor who was pretending to be the baker said their “sponge finger cake” was one of the best Charlotte cakes he had ever seen! What was he on about? I think its time we found out as I bring you…
Top 10 Best Charlotte Cake Recipes
10 – Berry, berry nice!
This first one should give you a great idea of things to come, it looks amazing, not too unhealthy and the perfect little summertime cake. What to make your own? Well then click on the image and it will take you to a great WordPress blog with an easy to follow the step-by-step guide to making one.
9 – The ultimate birthday cake
Now this is what I call a serious birthday cake! I would have ranked it much higher because most of you know by now that I love strawberries. (see my post “Top 10 Best Double-Dipped Strawberries”) but there is no making guide in the link making it a bit of a fail, but that doesn’t mean it is not an amazing looking cake anyway.
8 – The Plain Jane (or should that be Charlotte)
What I like about this is that it doesn’t look like art, it is just a basic Charlotte cake that we can all make, and while it doesn’t have a great guide to making them in the image like it does cover most of it with some easy to follow pictures.
7 – I just licked the screen!
Now that is how an image of a cake should look like! It looks amazing and does nothing less than make the mouth water.
6 – You put a peach in the mango then you eat ’em both up!
Now is ever there was a perfect Charlotte cake for summer it has just got to be this one! Imagine this in the summer heat, at a picnic, with a glass or lemonade! Think that sounds like a summer snack you could enjoy?
5 – Fact! Adding chocolate to anything makes it better!
And it sure does work when it comes to Charlotte cakes! This awesome looking cake is, in fact, low in fat! Need to know more?
4 – The art of contrast
While this one is basically the same as number 1 the different choice in berries make this stand out a lot more. Sadly there is no recipe or making guide in the link, but the good news is that it goes to a website that sells them! I can hardly make toast let alone a Charlotte cake so for me this is perfect!
3 – The OCD of Charlotte Cakes.
I find it amazing how a very basic Tiramisu cake with some few well-placed sponge fingers can look so amazing!
2 – A Kiss from the rose
Is it art or is it a sponge finger cake? What I loved about this is the self-made sponge finger wall that makes for a perfect cake tin for the caramel apple insides!
1 – Pass me a spoon and look away, because this is going to get messy!!!
I don’t joke around when I say to you all: I would eat this until I went blind! The thing with Charlotte cakes is that they are essentially dessert cakes. And if ever there was an image of a dessert I could eat a truckload of it is this one, nothing special to make a with a great step-by-step and recipe guide in the link.
