I had thought that pound cake was the standard type of cake to use for weddings and birthdays. But upon watching Cake Boss, I saw that Buddy used sponge cake quite a bit. Is that something that is common? Isn't it to soft for stacking? And does anyone have a good recipe for me to try?

Thank you. icon_biggrin.gif

stacking has nothing to do with the actual cake used, its all about the supports. so a sponge cake will do just fine.
its not so good for carving, btu if you are used to working with it, it can be done.
i like a victoria sponge - if you search on www.bbc.co.uk/food you will find the basic one, and some variations - sorry i dont have the correct link right now.
maderia sponge is good too though, its a bit more dense than the victoria sponge.
