cake moment

first time i ate sponge cake was with my next door neighbors who were from japan. i was about 8 or 9 at the time, and instantly i fell in love. love i say, LOVE. i have tried to make the cake exactly as mariko, the mother, used to make it, but i have failed on every attempt.

i miss mariko. she made me a spongecake for my birthday. she called me her blonde daughter- blonde like the yellow cake she had prepared. why did she have to move back to kyoto with her family when i was 11?

:( *goes and cries and then eats some angel food cake because no one sells spongecake in regular US supermarkets in massachusetts*

damn US supermarkets.
