    We used half of the ingredients suggested for the cake and the result was amazing – delicious feather-light cake! Haven’t added any icing or strawberries, it was nice enough, could only taste better with cream or fruit on top, will try it next time!

    I was really looking forward to making this cake.
    When I got around to making it, it landed up taking 1hour and a half to bake it!
    My result was so so. :(
