In theory this could also be egg free but I have never found or made a large sponge cake with egg replacer myself.
I cheated on this one - twins wanting separate cakes with different decorations of their choice and I searched the supermarket shelves this time!
Both Tesco and Sainsbury's do "Free From" sponge cakes, plain Victoria and others. Check the labels obviously, they seem to vary but ours were from Sainsburys.
I used buttercream made from caster sugar and "Pure" sunflower spread for the icing, needing a little less margarine than the recipe to achieve the desired consistency.
TIP: I learned recently to have a palette knife and cup of boiling water handy to smooth over the buttercream perfectly. I just wish someone had told me a long time ago!
