I am a big fan of cooking shows, especially those on baking. I found this recipe a few months ago from Cake Boss & now it's all I use for my sponge cakes. The secret to this cake being Light & Fluffy is the beating of the eggs. Don't rush that step.
Dirty Icing Recipe: Decorator's Buttercream - Cake Boss BUT I doubled the water, added 1 extra Tablespoon of vanilla, and it was too greasy so added 3 more cups powdered sugar! decorate cupcakes together!
