A few weeks ago we went to Oregon coast, as you saw on my Instagram account. It was my parents’ 40th Anniversary, so I baked a special cake to bring with us. My family is so spoiled by all the delicious foods, with one sister being a professional chef and another that bakes, that it’s not always easy to impress them. This cake, however, created a commotion.

I have also baked two of same cakes for kids, school fundraiser, one was sold for $600, insane right?! They told me that it was delicious.

The recipe for this cake is very simple, with step by step photo process. It doesn’t require any special skill and wont take much of your time.

For this recipe, you will need to bake one 7 inch Cacao Sponge Cake (click link for the recipe), divide the dough into two baking pans so it bakes better. Or if you wish to make an 11-inch cake, then bake two Cacao Sponge Cakes and double the cream.
