Sponge Cake With Strawberries and Cream Cheese Frosting: Learning To Make Sponge Cake From Cake Boss

Its that time of the year when I have to bake more than a birthday cake. This time is for my niece and it was a very special birthday. On her request for vanilla based cake, I decided to try Buddy Valastro, the Cake Boss recipe. It had great reviews and seemed very easy to prepare. This recipe helped me bake the best sponge cake ever. Great texture and taste, no wonder he is the cake boss. I am so excited to add this cake recipe to my blog for future reference. Please give this recipe a try and you will know what I am talking about. Here are some pictures that I was able to click on my cell phone.


2 x 9 inch circle pan
Stand Mixer
Measuring Cups and Spoons
Parchment Paper


Eggs - 4 large at room temp
Sugar - 2 cups
Vanilla - 1 tsp
Organic Whole Milk - 1 cup
Butter - 1/4 
APF - 2 cups
Baking Powder -2 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp

Cream Cheese Frosting:

Cream Cheese - 8 ounces
Powdered Sugar- 2 cups
Vanilla Essence- 1 tsp


1. Set the oven to 325  degree F.

2. In a large mixing bowl with paddle attachment  beat the  eggs for 4 minutes.  Do not skip this step because this makes the cake get the texture.

2. Add sugar, and continue mixing for another 4-5 minutes until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla and stir on low until just combined.

3. In a separate bowl, sift together dry ingredients.  Add to eggs and sugar on low speed until just combined.

4. In a saucepan, heat milk and butter on low heat just until butter is melted.  Add to batter, beat just until combined.

5. Pour into two greased and floured 8" round cake pans lined with parchment paper.

6. Bake until the middle springs back when touched, or a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, or for about 40 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand in pans for 10 minutes. Then turn out onto wire cooling racks and cool completely.

7. Place the big mixing bowl and whisk in the freezer. Add cream cheese and whisk until smooth. Add whipped cream, sugar and blend it together until stiff peaks forms.

8.Flip the cake so that the flat bottom will be on the top. With a pastry brush, spread some sugar water over the cake. Then take 1/2 cup of the frosting and spread, sprinkle some sliced strawberries. 

9. Brush some sugar water over the top of the next cake and place it in such a way so that the bottom flat part will be on the top. Add the rest of the frosting and spread the icing over the whole cake. 

10. Arrange the sliced strawberries to resemble a flower. Place it in the fridge for 30 minutes before slicing into it.
