Place the first sponge cake on a round serving tray. Drizzle with the sweetened fresh milk. Spread 1/3 of the cream, then place the second sponge cake on top, drizzle again with milk and spread another 1/3 cream, and repeat with the last layer. Finally cover the cake with cream, on top and along the sides.
