Basic Sponge Cake

My Grandma made the best sponge cake when we were kids I loved that she made my sister and I one each. Tracy had the pink icing and I had the chocolate icing, these were great days. I hope to bake amazing sponge cakes just like grandma. I know she would be proud as my mother does not bake. My first attempt was a disaster, way too thin and nothing like sponge. My work friend Kelly gave me a new recipe to try. I was so excited when it worked out perfect. If only my grandma could be here to see it.
