Sponge Cakes


Hello everyone

I'm looking for a recipe for a sponge cake.

I'm making a wedding cake (what have I let myself in for) and they want a sponge cake. I've no problems with the almond paste and the icing but it's the sponge cake itself that is becoming a bit of a nightmare.

I've got a year until the wedding but I'm practising with different recipes so I won't be in a panic nearer the time. A Victoria sponge is too light to take the weight of the almond paste and icing. Maderia cake is too heavy a sponge for digestion IMO sooooooooooooooooo anyone got any sponge cake recipes that they don't mind sharing.
