"This is a sponge cake that it is perfect for making petits fours. Dense yellow cake that can stand up to the process of being cut into small pieces, and iced individually. Decorate each little cake with a whole nut, some candied fruit, tiny candies, sprinkles or coconut."

2 cups Frosting for Petits Fours
The consistency of this cake was great...but I think it tastes like a sugar cookie. No real flavoring, just sugar. Maybe less sugar and some sort of extract?? I'm not sure. I will try it again, though, because I love how dense it is--perfect for cake decorating.
The cake lacks a flavoring (adding good vanilla helps, I mixed it in with the milk) and is VERY light and crumbly so I didn't find it suitable for my petit fours.
I'm eager to try this, but I would like to say after reading the reviews that a sponge cake is not meant to be very "tasty" by itself, you should soak it with simple syrup and flavorings when you are assembling it. Its meant for it's texture and then you add the flavor.
I did not care for this recipe.
"I did not care for this recipe"...... is NOT AT ALL what I wrote to rate this recipe....If we cannot express how we feel in OUR OWN words then what's the purpose in having users rate a recpie if someone can just come in and delete it and write what they want all the while your name is beside the rating??? UNFAIR, YES I BELEIVE SO!!
Apparantly what I wrote worked because the recipe owner has revised this receipe and actually added the things they had left out....none-the-less, the cake and icing is horrible and a giant waste of time. Hopefully MY own words will stay attached here beside MY name because it's MY rating!
Sadly some people just cannot accept the truth.
I tried this recipe twice, and both times it came out terrible. There was no flavor to it, so I did add vanilla, and quite a bit, but there was still no flavor. Also, it was very hard to get the batter evenly into the pan as it was very sticky. I also couldn't get the cake cut evenly because I couldn't get it in the pan evenly. It crumbled something bad and broke easily. I've been doing cakes for 25 years and haven't come up against one that was this bad. Unfortunately, I'm not able to say anything good about this one.
This recipie was AMAZING! No other word for it!
This is a great recipe. Sponge cake for the most part doesn't have much flavor. But the great thing about it is you can add to it. Whether it is chocolate, or minced lemon zest. This recipe came out great for me. and was to die for with my marzipan frosting!
I think the recipe should call for beating the egg whites separately and then folding it in. That would make the texture better. The cake itself had large holes and not good for petit four icing (you could see the holes). It also tasted like eggs. Don't try this!!!
