Read on for cake!
My mother made me a cake for my birthday. Sadly, I cannot tell you the recipe, because I simply don't know. What I do know is that it had a layer of sponge cake, a layer of meringue (whipped egg white and sugar turned crisp-ish), and topped with chopped almonds and bits of chocolate. The cake was then cut in half. A generous layer of custard and whipped cream (!) was added to the bottom half, before the top half finished the cake. Awesome!
