Sponge Cake with Dulce De Leche Cream

I made this cake for my neighbor for her birthday a few months ago. It is just a simple sponge cake with Dulce De Leche cream frosting. This is the same frosting I used for Carlos birthday cake . Everyone seems to like this frosting a lot when they tasted Carlos cake so I used it again for Nancy’s cake. Thanks to Wendy for sharing the frosting recipe. Sorry I can’t show you how the cake looks like on the inside as I forgot to ask Nancy to take a picture of it.

Dulce De Leche Cream

3. Once all the cream has been added turn the mixer to high speed and whisk until soft peaks.
4. Lower down the mixer speed and add in the gelatin mixture. Continue to whisk until stiff.
