    Pastryismybiz's Note:

    This is a 2 generation favorite. The layers are similar to a genoise. The cooked filling is simple and carrys the flavors of butter, vanilla and eggs. A sifting of powered sugar just before presentation is all it needs. I have, for birthdays, frosted the sides with 7 minute frosting. It's time to share this.
