Flavouring a Sponge Cake with Quince Jelly

I made a sponge over the weekend.  I didn't have any beautiful warm weather bounty such as strawberries or raspberries.  I did, however, have some of my quince paste left.  After I had beaten the cream, I added some of the quince paste to it.  It gave it a lovely flavour, but it was very subtle.

So I spread a layer of the jelly between the two cakes for added flavour.  It was yummy!  I heard Miss four telling her siblings that it was the best cake ever.

The mild flavour of the cream would be lovely on other fresh fruit type of desserts.  I will be using it again soon.
