Korean Birthday Cake Recipes

I would like to make a Korean birthday cake. Can someone please convert the ingredients to measurements?

Koreans enjoy all kinds of baked goods. We love them! The most traditional are rice cakes (tteok) filled with red beans and coated in mugwort and other things.. Regarding cakes, in almost every grocery store in Korea there is a bakery section. They sell buns filled with cream, red bean, peanut butter cream, custard cream, donut twists (very Korean), they also sell sponge cakes, and a variety of savory croquettes filled with salad (mayo, eggs, lettuce, cucumber, etc.), hot dogs, and vegetables. They always have cakes around. The most popular are sponge cakes which are made with a thick layer of sponge cake with a thin layer of butter cream rolled up to make a roll? These are flavoured with mocha and sometimes are just plain. Sponge cake is probably the most Korean cake you'll find. Just make it look pretty with some cream icing (put some pretty colour dye in the icing) and some fruits cut up nicely and some whipped cream. Another thing Koreans love is the opera cake with thin layers of coffee buttercream, almond sponge cake, and chocolate glaze. These are all very complicated to make. I suggest you go to a Korean bakery and buy one or if not give it a try!

I think the Korean birthday cake is the same as the Japanese Christmas cake: a sponge cake, not too sweet, with whipped cream and fruits. Check out: japanesefood.about.com Put "Christmas cake" in the search. There is a recipe there with American measurements. If you put "Japanese Christmas cake" in your browser you will get many possibilities, including one made from a cake mix.
