this cake is realy soft you can use this cake as base for pine apple cake. Just replace the sugar syrup with pine apple juice & chunks, change the way of decoration. Use pieces of pine apple for decoration.

"This was lovely. I added a few drops of red food colouring to give the sponge a pink colour. Perfect for a little girls cake! X"

I don't know why my cake turned out very thin. And it was not spongy and soft at all.I used 7 inch spring form tin as instructed.
