This stunning cake, for all its simplicity, is a winner. It is elegant, delicate and delicious, the perfect cake for a birthday or an occasion like Mother's Day. It also makes for an outstanding dessert! Once again, I have used my trusty sponge cake recipe which never fails for me. This was a short 2 layer cake. For a taller cake, simply double the recipe to make 4 layers in which case you will need two baking pans instead of one.
