This cake was a random idea that popped in my head one fine day…..
Some weeks later, I made it, shared it on Facebook…. and made it again for my kids’ children’s day in school.

The layering for my latter attempt wasn’t as good, maybe because I put it too low in the oven, hence, the layers curved up. So, in order for you to get a better looking cake than me, I suggest that you bake it on the middle rack instead of the lower rack.
