Sponge cakes are often labelled as "shortcakes" or "sponge flan cakes." During the summer months, these cakes can typically be found displayed with the fresh strawberries in the produce section of the supermarket.
Substitute 6 (1/2-inch-thick) pound cake slices for the trimmed sponge cake round. Arrange in single layer on bottom of springform pan, trimming slices as necessary to completely cover bottom of pan.
