Hi,\nYesterday I baked my first Victoria sponge cake and I have a few questions regarding my results. I should have taken a pic, because it looked delicious. \n\nI was a little underwhelmed with the final product though. I only let the cakes cool 20 min before adding the filling, because I was in a rush to go to a dinner party. The. I placed the completed sandwich in the fridge for about 10 min. When I pulled it out the whipped cream was pouring out the sides , but still cool. We drove to the party with air conditioning on to keep it cool and placed it in the fridge of our guest home. Finally about an hour later when I served the cake the inside looked under baked. The cake was dense and not spongy. I thought i failed, but someone heated their cake a little in the microwave and the cake became spongy and delicious. \n\nI know I haven't given all the details of baking, but because of the whipped cream I assumed the cake should be ok in the fridge. Does it sound like my cake was under baked or does this type of cake get dense in the fridge and need to be warned up before serving ?\n\nAny advice will be appreciated. Everyone enjoyed the heated version of the cake and their was nothing left, but I wasn't expecting the results I got.
