Fun Neapolitan Birthday Cake

READY IN: 58mins
Recipe by Treva W

I couldn't decide what flavor birthday cake to make, and this creation was then born. It looked really cool, and those at the party loved it! My mother had never heard of this approach to a cake before, so I thought this was definitely an idea worth sharing!

What a great idea!! I made this for a pal at work for his birthday, and everyone loved it. I did frost it with homemade chocolate buttercream frosting though insead of white. Yum!
