This lovely cake has been made by my mom and her dear friend, Toni, for over 5 decades. It is a lovely layered cake/slice, and presents beautifully on buffets. My mom, born and bread in Poland, and Toni, born and bred in Czechoslovakia, grudgingly admit that those "Hahnkees" (Hungarians) really know how to bake. I think this proves them right.
