(I changed my blog colour to "red" in order to usher Chinese New Year, hopefully it will bring me good luck and "Ong" , hehehe !!)
Finally, i found a sponge cake recipe which is really good, moist and spongy, and I can use this as a cake base for Birthday cake.
Recipe adapted from FoodHouse8 (she is my favourite baking master !!), if you know Chinese, the video is self-explanatory, otherwise check below recipe.

Cake flour 106g
Baking soda 1g (I changed to 1tsp)

3. Add in glucose and continue beat on MEDIUM speed till double in volume and ribbon-like.
4. Sift cake flour and baking soda, beat on LOW speed till mix well.
