Pour the sponge cake batter in a 9×9-inch baking pan that has been greased with butter and floured. Preheat oven to 180 C degrees and bake the cake for 25 minutes. The cake is ready when you can lightly press on it with your finger and it bounces back. Remove the cake from the oven and let cool before decorating it. When the cake is cool, spread butter icing on the top of the cake. Decorate with flowers. I made them using gum paste. This is the cake I made for my daughter’s 26th birthday.   See my web sites www.stellarecipe.webs.com www.recipesrilanka.blogspot.com

This melt-in-your mouth coffeecake starts with a time-honored family pantry staple, biscuit baking mix. It's my favorite of yam recipes — I love the naturally sweet yams that are given a hint of tart from the cranberries. This makes a great breakfast treat the morning after Thanksgiving, too.

The cake batter in this recipe has meringue in it that gives it that extra light and fluffy texture. Poured on top of crunchy tangerine-flavored caramel and fresh slices of persimmon, it’s the perfect combination of texture, freshness, and sweet.

Dirt Cake
This classic kids' dessert is easy enough to make, and doesn't require an oven. To jazz up the presentation, clean out tiny flower pots or sand pails for individual cakes. Or, if you're layering the cake in a standard cake pan like I did, freeze the cake and defrost it an hour before serving. Click here to see A Sweet Tooth's Dream: 8 Fantastic Dessert Recipes.
