Have updated the pics with stepwise. I baked this cake in a round cake tin for hubbys bday as this is his favourite cake :) You can use a loaf pan and bake the cake too. Eggless Vanilla Sponge Cake Recipe
Updated on 29-03-12 : I tried a readymade icing on the cake this time when I baked it, refrigerated overnight and then cut it the next day. The slices were firm and clean.The above pic is after I cut it the next day and other pics were cut just waiting for an hour - Uploaded this pic to show the texture difference. Tastewise no difference at all both were soft and yummy.So I suggest to cut into slices allowing it cool down completely leaving atleast 3-4 hours to get firm neat slices.
