For the sponge cake:

6 eggs 200g sugar 200g flour 1 packet of baking powder A pinch of salt For filling and decoration (optional):

Jam of your choice (strawberry, apricot, etc.) Whipped cream Fresh fruit (strawberries, raspberries, etc.) Powdered sugar for dusting Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and prepare a buttered and floured cake pan.

In a large bowl, separate the egg yolks from the whites. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form with a pinch of salt.

In another bowl, beat the egg yolks with sugar until the mixture becomes pale and fluffy.

Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the egg yolk and sugar mixture, stirring from bottom to top to maintain the mixture's volume.

Sift the flour and baking powder, then add them to the mixture, gently folding with a spatula until you have a homogeneous batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and level it with a spatula.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the cake is golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool completely in the pan.

Once cooled, you can slice the sponge cake in half and fill it with jam, whipped cream, and fresh fruit, if desired.

Close the cake and decorate the surface with whipped cream and fresh fruit as desired. You can also dust the cake with powdered sugar.

Serve the sponge cake at room temperature and store it in the refrigerator if filled with ingredients that require refrigeration.

This sponge cake is a classic pastry, perfect for any occasion!

Finally, don't forget to prepare gift bags with small toys or treats for the children attending the party and take lots of photos to capture special moments and create unforgettable memories for all the participants.

The main goal is to have fun and create an unforgettable experience for the birthday child and their guests! Happy birthday to the little one!
