Victoria Kumquat Cake | Irresistibly Delicious

Victorian cakes are usually made with strawberries or raspberries
But I decided to take advantage of my kumquat mix. I prefer butter cream to whipped cream for Victoria’s cake. But you can simply whip whipped cream. Refrigerate it for about a day for better taste.
