Now, I'm smarter, after all the effort of waiting for each layer to brown, I make a BIGGER cake. Almost the same amount of effort but you get 1.5 times more. Better deal, trust me, it is worth it.
And I got myself a new handheld mixer. If you follow the recipe closely, you'll know how annoying it is to mix egg yolk, egg white and butter , each separately. Now with a handheld mixer, I can mix them separately in separate bowls. Thank heavens for the handheld.
Then assemble the ingredients neatly :
A tray of eggs. YES ! 30 EGGS !!! This is by far the artery clogging cake.
a 12 x 12 inch pan
one bowl for the whites
another for the butter and a separate one for yolks
