Grandma's birthday cake..^^ 外婆的生日蛋糕

Every year when it comes to my dear grandma's birthday, all of us her grandchildren will have to prepare a dish to bring over for dinner. It is just like having potluck gathering for our family. Everyone of us enjoy it this way for years.

This year it is special for me, because I am preparing a birthday cake for my dear 外婆..^^
I make a simple cake but with all my heart...:p It is a Sponge cake with kiwi filling, sandwich in between.

Sponge cake:
4 grade 'A' eggs
65gms castor sugar
15gms ovalette
25ml milk
90gms plain flour ~ sieved
55ml melted butter

To do:
1) Lined greaseproof paper on a 23cm x 27cm swiss roll baking tray.
2) Beat eggs, sugar, milk and ovalette until foamy and thick. (Take about 5-8 minutes to beat) Turn mixture to low and blend in the flour just to combine.
3) With low speed slow pour in the melted butter while beating. Do not over beat the mixture.
4) Pour the mixture into the prepared baking tray and baking at 180c for 20 minutes.

Icing of the cake:
300ml Non dairy whipping cream
2-3 tbsp Bakels kiwi filling

To do:
1) Whisk the non dairy whipping cream in medium speed until it is double the volume but do not over beat it. ( If over beat it will turn to watery and will not hold its shape)
2) Take out half of the beaten cream and mix with the kiwi filling and spread on one of the sponge cake. Lay the other sponge cake on top.
3) Use the left over cream to spread on the whole cake and add on the decorations.

Decorations of the cake:
some cooking chocolate
some royal icing flowers
2 sugar gumpaste ladybugs
some kiwi fillings
