A no fail sponge cake! Split each layer and spread with lemon pie filling or custard and frost with whipped cream. Also great for strawberry shortcake or your favorite trifle recipe.

Thank you Marie for a definitely fuss free sponge cake. Within an hour I had this beautiful sponge sitting on bench top cooling. The sponge rose well and looks great and tasted even better.
