For the decoration


  1. Green Sponge Cake

    Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease and line three 20cm (8 inch) round cake tins.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy.

  3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, adding a tablespoon of flour with each egg to prevent curdling.

  4. Sift in the remaining flour and baking powder, then gently fold into the mixture until just combined.

  5. Add green food coloring until the desired shade is reached, mixing well.

  6. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake tins and smooth the tops with a spatula.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.

  8. Allow the cakes to cool in their tins for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

  9. White Filling

    In a mixing bowl, whisk together the mascarpone cheese and icing sugar until smooth.

  10. In another bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.

  11. Gently fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture until well combined.

  12. Fold in the crushed fresh redcurrants gently.

  13. Assembly

    Once the cakes have cooled completely, place one layer on a serving plate or cake stand.

  14. Spread a generous layer of the white filling over the top of the cake layer.

  15. Place the second cake layer on top and repeat the process, spreading more filling.

  16. Finally, place the third cake layer on top.

  17. Use the remaining white filling to cover the top of the cake, creating a smooth surface.

  18. Crumble some of the green sponge cake on top of the white filling.

  19. Decorate the cake with fresh redcurrants on top of the crumbled sponge.

  20. Serve and enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day three-layer green cake!
