This is a delicious cake which is perfect for celebrating spring or Easter!.The base is an Algerian sponge cake known as 'Meskucho'. For an easter feel decorate with chocolate mini eggs, easter chicks etc. The cake is very easy to make & decorate so don't be put off by the long list of instructions & ingredients! This is my husbands favoruite kind of cake as it is light, fluffy & moist. You can eat it with just the icing on for a less heavy cake but the addition of the filling makes it a perfect dessert!
