Since by now you must have got the recipe for sponge cake and  pound cake , I thought of  sharing few tips while making these cakes. 1. Add cocoa powder if you want to have a chocolate sponge cake.2. A fail-safe method for cleaning your mixing bowl well before whisking the egg whites is to cut a lemon in half and rub the bowl with the fleshy side of the fresh lemon as the citric acid ensures a fat-free whisking bowl.3. Have all your ingredients at room temperature; cold ingredients do not blend evenly.4. Since butter is one of the primary flavors in this cake, use good sweet butter with high butterfat content. I also prefer cultured butter , which impart a wonderful complexity of flavor.5. Beat the butter very well in a stand mixer- at least five minutes - and add the sugar slowly. Then beat some more. Keep scraping the bowl down.6. Add the eggs one at a time. Incorporate as much air as possible to make the cake really puff. I like to beat each egg for a full two minutes before adding the next one.7. Use cake flour. It will make your cake more tender.8. When it’s time to add the flour, remove the bowl from the mixer and do it by hand, gently folding the flour in. Stop as soon as the flour is incorporated into the butter and egg mixture; keeping as light a hand as possible here will make keep the cake wonderfully delicate.9. If you want a beautiful crack down the middle, melt a little butter. When the cake has been in the oven for 10 minutes and the top is just starting to form a crust, dip a sharp knife into the butter and quickly draw it lengthwise down the middle of the cake. It will form a perfectly picturesque crack.10. Serving Suggestions: Although sponge cake can be eaten as it is, it can be used as the base for many different layered cakes.11.Make two or more cakes for a layered sponge. Double or triple the recipe ingredients if you are adept at mixing quickly; otherwise, make the additional cakes separately so that each cake remains light and fluffy.  For information on fencing, please check out
