I have to say, I didn't expect this cake to be sooooo delicious . Oh my , did I just say that . LOL . When I saw the posting about this cake, I have a mix feeling about this cake. I was curious to taste this and yet I was not confident if any of us will like the taste of this cake or not. 

Cake soak in 3 diff types of milk. Hmmmmmmm .... what do you think ? Interesting , doubtful , curious or let's do it ? ... Well I have always trusted my baking buddies . So I say " let's do it ". So I started searching around for some interesting recipe , when I saw Lena's post. So I decided to do the same . 

Honestly , I dun mind about the extra milk soaking the cake cos it's simply delicious ( that's because I was in a rush to finish up this cake before popping it into to the fridge as I need to go fetch my girl back home ) . The verdict : Everyone love this cake. Everyone ask for a second helping except for baby Ryan. Hee... Guess he prefer his own milk than this . I think my sponge cake didn't rise as much as its suppose to be , but it's still very delicious. 

I served each slice with extra dollop of DDL .... hmmm... yummy ...
