Looking for recipes for British desserts

Hello!

My parents are British ex-pats who constantly reminisce about pastries and desserts from their childhood. Their 25th anniversary is coming up, so my siblings and I are planning a menu full of their favorite British foods. I'm in charge of desserts!

I'm on the hunt for two recipes: a proper British sponge cake and a dairy cream cake recipe.

I've tried some genoise recipes, but my mum is adamant that British sponge cake tastes totally different. As for a cream cake, I'm not even sure what that is, but again, my dad says it trumps American buttercream cakes. Picky folks, they are, when it comes to desserts.

I would really appreciate the help!
