What's a sponge cake without a yummy jam filling? Many people assume that baking a sponge cake is tricky, but wait until you have to cut it in half to spread the jam and cream filling. Trying to get through the centre of the sponge cake requires great skill and precision. Often, uneven layers, lumps and bumps remain where they are not needed after cutting into half.
However, there's a simple tool that can solve the problem: a piece of kitchen string. This is possible because a piece of string is like a thin straight line that can be twisted, folded, or turned the way you want, and because of the material used to make a string, no matter how thin or tiny it is, it is firm and can cut through something soft like a sponge cake.
To use the piece of string to cut through the sponge cake properly, you will have to follow these steps:
Now that you've made a clean cut, separating the two layers of the sponge cake, get your fillers — jam, cream, and the like, and spread them on the lower layer. When you are done, gently lift the top cake, the same way you placed it down, place it on the fillings and gently take out the knife. And your jam or cream-filled sponge cake is ready to be eaten.
Cutting neatly through a sponge cake is not so hard, you just need to know the proper method you can do it, and here you have it. Enjoy!
