    Loriell's Note:

    Recipe taken from the Duncan Hines website. I was searching for a birthday cake to meet some dietary restrictions of the guests (no seeds, no citrus, no chocolate). Apricot preserves, generously spread between layers of cream cake, present a delightful alternative to berries. Garnish with coconut flakes to create a tropical contrast.

      Split each cake layer in half horizontally. (I used dental floss while my husband gently held the cake in place with a clean kitchen towel. It was very easy to do!) Reserve 1 tablespoon preserves. Place one split cake layer on serving plate. Spread one-third remaining preserves on top. Repeat with remaining layers and preserves, leaving top plain.
