Cook: My maiden attempt on cream cake--Mango Longan Cream Cake

My first cream cake :)
Difficulty: 4/5

I have always wanted to attempt making cream cake but always being put off because of its lengthy steps. One have to prepare the cake sponge base first and then assemble them with the cream and then garnish... I always find it a hassle.

Recently, I joined this Spore Home Cooks Group on Facebook and there are so many good cooks there, many of them have attempted making cream cake and it looks very pretty and yummy so i decided to try one on my own :)

Made one mango cream cake for aunt's birthday... Even though the steps are tedious but I am glad that i made it. It received good feedback from those who tried and although the cake doesn't looks very pretty but for my first attempt, i am satisfied :)
