to say bye bye to summer properly and welcome autumn in Barcelona, I decided to back to June when I baked this huge cake for a wedding.
everyone knows that this is a classic, so easy to bake and works perfectly on any occasion. it’s so tasty and refreshing because of the whipped cream and the fruit inside, and also the texture of the cake it’s so spongy..obviously it’s a sponge cake.
by the way! here you have a picture of the couple..how beautiful they were on that special day! weren’t they? also I love their style .)

I multiplied this recipe for 5’5 more times to get the huge result of this wedding cake.
the quality of the vanilla extract in this cake it’s very important, I used “nielsen-massey”.
