    Do you know how I could make this lemon instead of vanilla? I figure, since it already has lemon in it, it should be easy to do.

    • Diane Fiske-Foy

      Bre West I was hoping to make the cake and frosting lemon. I don’t like vanilla at all. The smell of it nauseates me. I usually don’t use it at all.

    • Bre West

      Diane Fiske-Foy could add some lemon zest to the frosting to make it lemony frosting and maybe a tsp of lemon juice to the frosting :) keep the sponge vanilla

    I am one of those few who didnt stabilise their egg whites and during testing of stability of egg whites I turned the bowl over above my head *splat* lesson learned .. 😭😂😂😂
    I can vouch that is good cake though and anyone eating that amount of cake should host cake parties so we can all just dig in with our forks 😂😂

    Emma, hello from Miami!
    Quick question, will this cake hold up dulce de leche instead of the cream cheese filling? I’m planning on making this cake on Friday and keep it refrigerated for my party on Saturday. I’m just not sure if u can refrigerate it with the deluxe de leche.
    Thanks in advance!
    Keep it up girl, you are doing a great job!

  • Jessica JJLO
    Jessica JJLO 4 months ago +1

    I made it. It tasted good but it did not look like yours. Mine was tilted to one side and looked kinda funny 😆 does anyone know why my cake looks white instead of yellow like in the video?

    • Jessica JJLO
      Jessica JJLO 4 months ago +1

      @Remarkable yeah the tilted part is because I'm a beginner 😆

    • Remarkable
      Remarkable 4 months ago +1

      Not sure - it might be the color of your egg yolks. If they were pale in color, your cake might look white rather than yellow. That probably wasn't the cause of the tilt, though ;)

    It took me 6 tries to get this cake down perfect. I never made a sponge cake before. It was a huge hit and will be one of the cakes for my son's wedding. Thanks...I searched 3 months for a cake that tastes this good. Fyi...I made it tasting lemony lol.

      @Tammy Haga the colour might bleed into the yellow sponge.

    • Tammy Haga
      Tammy Haga 4 months ago

      I have a question...
      The wedding colors are blue and yellow.
      What do you suppose would happen if I put blueberry liquid over the cake instead of milk?

    • Tammy Haga
      Tammy Haga 4 months ago

      @Emma's Goodies
      Yes, I used lemon extract to the cake as well as the cheesecake filling...it was a refreshing and light cake. The kids ate the cheesecake filling that was leftover with Graham crackers and toast as well as just scooping it out to just eat...I made a lot hahaha

    • Emma's Goodies

Can you help me on how to have an exact measurments for the order I am recieving? Like for example, a customer asked me to make 1 box or 6 pcs of cupcake. But my recipe is for 18 pcs of cupcake. How can I solve this problem?. Your answer will be greatly appreciated 😊😊

      You need to learn how to scale recipes up or down to meet your needs. This is much easier to do if you weigh all your ingredients (as opposed to using volume measures like cups).

      Hi John, I'm glad you're here!💕 Thank you! To answer your question I prefer any sponge cake with the addition of some fat (oil/butter), as it makes the cake more tender 😘

    Emma, Would it be too much if I add lemon curd in-between some of the layers
    My store Smiths makes a lemon creme shortcake and a strawberry creme shortcake they that looks like this cake Except some layers have Lemon curd and the other layers have icing .(lemon creme shortcake) It’s $14 to have one made from my store bakery but I think I want to make it myself.
    When I mean to much would it be to sweet
