Notes
Servings: You may easily cut the cake into 16 pieces - although (if you like) also 12 pieces are fine.
The cake is even better when stored in the fridge although the sponge gets a bit compact. (My private feeling.)
The cake may be stored in the fridge for at least 3-4 days.
Sorry: no experience w/ freezing!
