This is the recipe mom used...you could bake any sponge cake recipe.
This is a simple cake that travels nicely.
A favorite side dish of mom's.
Mom made these for every occasion. They are very well liked.
She always made a cookie sheet of sponge cake and then cut them into 1 inch squares before icing with confectioner's Icing and then rolling in coconut. She made a second variety where she would flavor the icing with maple syrup and roll the cookies in chopped walnuts.
This vanilla vertical-layer cake is stuffed and iced with strawberry buttercream. You could of course, use any filling and icing you prefer.
I like this cake because it is similiar to a German Baumkuchen, but this is simplier to make.
