I made the sponge cake with this recipe. Once the sponge has cooled completely, it is divided into 2. A piece of it was spiked with brandy syrup and topped with whipped cream and strawberries. The second piece of sponge is placed on top and is spiked with brandy too. *grins*
The plastic cake case was pretty handy. I notice that the cake does not get dry as fast as when stored in a box.
Anyway, the cake didn't last that long either. 3/4 of it is gone by now.
