This chef, however, took his love for the dishwashing sponge to another level by actually making it into a cake or as he aptly called it, a dishwashing “sponge” cake!

Can you tell the difference?

The chef, Herman Huang, posted these pictures on subtle asian traits which received massive online support. He even posted a making-of video on his YouTube channel, HNC Kitchen.

In case you’re interested, here’s what you need to make the Edible Dishwashing Lemon Sponge Cake:

“Soap foam” Lemon Meringue frosting:

  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 20g sugar

Now that we have everything, it’s bakin time!

1. Mix the butter (melted), sugar, salt and vanilla extract, whisk it properly. Next, add the eggs one by one and continue whisking.

2. Sift the flour and baking powder onto the mixture

3. Pour and mix the lemon juice

4. Separate the mixture into three portions

5. For 2/3 of the mixture, add a few drops of yellow food colouring

6. For 1/3 of the mixture, add a few drops of green food colouring plus a drop of black food colouring

7. Prepare two baking pans for the mixtures (the chef used an 8-inch square size pan)

8. Preheat the oven to 160 degree Celsius ( Yellow cake is baked for 15 minutes, Green cake is baked for 10 minutes)

9. Let the cakes cool down for 15 minutes

10. Spread some marmalade onto the yellow cake

11. Place the green cake on top and scrape off the green cake mildly to give it that “sponge” texture.


Lemon meringue “foam”:

1. Mix the lemon juice, egg white, vanilla extract and sugar, whisk it over a water bath.

Once, you’ve done all this, just enjoy the cake or maybe you can even prank your friends!
