Teapot Birthday Cake

Look what's been keeping me out of mischief! 

We have a 3rd birthday here pretty soon and a little girl who loves tea parties, so a teapot birthday cake seemed like a great idea!

If I'm honest, I fear that it may look better than it tastes as for some reason I opted to make a victoria sponge instead of my standard chocolate cake or yoghurt cake.
I amazed myself by not curdling the mixtures at all, but I'm not sure how well the cake stood up to the fact that I had to open the oven door a few times to check the cooking time (this was unknown due to the fact that I baked the cakes in a pyrex bowl and then stacked them on top of each other)

Lets hope Rascal likes it, that's the most important thing isn't it!

EDITED TO ADD: If you are curious how I made this, you can find a rough guide here
