Here we go! Week one of my Great Irish Bake Off (GIBO) challenge and a regular blog post! For me, the most important thing about battenburg cake is the story! Some say the true origin of the cake is unknown. Of all the theories my favorite is the marriage of Queen Victoria’s granddaughter, Princess Victoria to Prince Louis of Battenberg. The four squares represented the four Battenberg Princes Louis, Alexander, Henry and Francis Joseph. Maybe I should have left the final photo to the end, but I could not wait to show you!
