For the vanilla sponge cake recipe, I used this recipe from the book: Bake Essential Companion by Alison Thompson (link to the book: http://www.angusrobertson.com.au/books/bake-alison-thompson/p/9780143203674 ).

bake at 170 degrees Celsius (or 340 degrees Fahrenheit)

i used a half stiff cream cheese frosting recipe, which is half buttercream half cream cheese frosting. .
