Cake Roll

I made a twin layered Choco Mocha cake yesterday. Now I am left with some Mocha Mascarpone frosting. Surfing through the net I found this yummy recipe of no flour sponge cake which is super soft. Combining the cake base with mocha mascarpone frosting will be nice experiment. Finally I am very happy with the results; it’s really soft,  creamy and actually mouth melting.
