This is a three-tier white sponge cake that's ideal for a wedding. It is practical and looks beautiful once it has been decorated.
Worked out perfectly for my friend's wedding cake! I used 'buttercream icing' recipe also on this site and decorated the top of the cake with fresh flowers. - 18 Jul 2011
This cake is more of a spice cake and is more likely to be used during the holiday season. - 01 May 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I doubled this recipe and made a few changes.. I doubled the vanilla, added real vanilla bean, and took out the mace. I also used about half the lemon. It was a little time consuming seperating the eggs but it really made the cake light and fluffy. By doubling the recipe I got 3 eight inch cakes and two 14 inch cakes... which made a nice two tier birthday cake for my friend. Overall I was satisfied with the basic recipe, it was a very light and moist cake.. but the flavor was changed. - 14 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
