To make this DIY sponge cake you will need:

Paint (white, red/pink)

Paint brush

Scissors

Step 1 Cut the sponges into triangles to create the cake slice shape. Start cutting from the corner towards the centre of the opposite edge of the sponge. Try to make all three sponges as similar in shape and size as possible.

Step 2 Using the PVA glue, stick the three sponges together. I layered mine so that there is a pink sponge in between two yellow sponges - so it looks like a vanilla and strawberry cake! Wait for the glue to dry.

Step 3 Mix the white and red/pink paint together to create a light pink shade - this will be the icing for the cake. Paint it on as thickly as possible on the areas between the layers of sponge, on top of the cake and down the back. Repeat with another coat of paint if necessary. Leave to dry.

Step 4 Stick some pom poms on top of the cake craft to decorate it using PVA glue. Use a red pom pom to put a cherry on top!
