Sponge cake, Genoise Cake and chiffon cake are often regarded as being one and the same, they are actually quite different.

Sponge cake contains no fat, the yolks and white need to be beaten separately.

Genoise cake is uncommonly known. it contains clarified butter, and it is no need to separate the eggs, it is beaten in whole over warm water.

While, chiffon cake is a hybrid of the sponge and genoise. it contains oil that keep the cake moist and tender. And the eggs are beaten separately.

I chose this genoise cake to make with my Thermomix as a base cake for my son’s birthday cake, with the versatility, light and delicate, yet structurally firm, it can hold the fillings and frosting well.

Using 8 inch and 6 inch génoise cake to fill in between each cake (cut half horizontally) with a very lightly sweetened whipped cream and dried cranberries and fresh blueberries, frost it with additional whipped cream and blueberries on top with some nuts, and garnished with black sesame powder mix with poppy seeds (as road), powdered lotus biscuits, toasted walnuts, sliced almond and pistachio (as soils)! The rest are real toys!

Before removing the cake from the mold, make sure it has cooled down entirely. This step is crucial to prevent breakage or sticking. To release any parts of the cake that may be stuck, gently press it down and away from the sides of the mold. Once done, securely hold the mold and the cooling rack or plate together, and execute a careful flip so that the mold ends up on top, while the cake rests on the cooling rack or plate. Slowly lift the mold, allowing the cake to separate completely. Remember to handle the cake with care during the removal process to avoid any damage.
