Today I constructed this luscious cake and took it to our Mother's Day afternoon tea. It was so easy for me, a time poor mother and looked and tasted marvellous. I could not find a frozen pound cake {not even a Sara Lee one] here in Melbourne so used a store bought sponge cake that was already cut into two horizontally which made my job even easier. I adorned the top of the cake with passionfruit. This is one yummy dessert cake !!
