This celebratory cake is based on an old Victoria sponge recipe, but I made a rather large one with no layers, baked in a bundt or ring cake pan. I used fragrant, tiny Ercolini pears (in season here in the northern hemisphere). I adorned the cake with a salted caramel sauce I made and while on the theme: caramel shards. Looks fancy but is so easy to make and takes just a cup of white sugar and a teaspoon of sea salt.
