Hi Marina, This cake truly looks mouthwatering, delicious and tempting!! :-D

Looks like the slices come out neat as well.

N before I go ahead and try it out...

May I know if 'caster sugar' and 'light brown sugar' can be simply replaced by our regular white refined sugar which is easily available in our houses??

Is it ok or will it make a big difference to the cake texture and taste??

What is the reason behind using these different types of sugar in baking cakes??
