Anyhoo! Today my mom was craving Sponge Cake. She specifically requested that I fill it with Dulce De Leche (which is also the national sweet of Argentina) and top it off with whipped cream. My mom's a very simple woman who likes very simple desserts which in turn makes my life easier ;)
|I love cake batter <3|
I'm still a newbie when it comes to cake decorating. I haven't had much time to practice any new techniques but I'm going to keep on trying till I get it just right.

Mom was very satisfied with the cake, she had around 2 slices already! So glad :)
Update: Recipe request!
What you'll need:.
- 2 sticks of butter (Approx. 300g), softened
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1½ cups self-rising flour
- 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F)
- Grease and lightly flour two 9x3-inch round cake pans; line the bottoms with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, on the medium speed of an electric mixer, cream the butter until smooth.
- Add the sugar gradually and beat for 3 minutes until fluffy.
- Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
- Combine the flours and add in four parts, alternating with the milk and the vanilla extract, beating well after each addition. (Note: you can simply mix in the vanilla extract with the milk to make the alternation easier)
- Divide the batter among the cake pans.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
- Let cakes cool in pans for ten minutes.
- Remove from pans and cool completely on wire rack.
Take one can of sweetened condensed milk. Place it in the center of a pressure pot, cover with water till the can is about 1½ inches deep in water. Cook on high heat for 20 minutes exactly. Remove can and wait for it to cool down. Open seal and spread onto cake.
I used the Dream Whip sachets; instructions are found on the sachet itself :)
