Texture of this cake is so good

My friends have been telling me about castella after they visited Korea. They said they tried it at starbucks and it was so good. I bought this course and followed the instructions. So good! So soft and it is delicious. Not sure if it is the same as starbucks in Korea but still so happy and delicious.
