If you’ve been eating Easter European cakes, you will notice that layered cakes are quite popular. I love eating cakes with very thin layers because they come more creamy.

Chocolate Layer Cake (aka Spartak Cake) slice on a plate

This cake has extra thin layers, with a good balance of cream in between. Yes, the cake does take a little more effort and the steps may seem never-ending, but it’s pretty simple if you follow the steps. I would say that even if you’re not a typical baker, you should be able to nail this one.

This recipe is a very original traditional recipe for a Russian cake, called Spartak. If you grew up in a Slavic community, you’ve probably had this cake more than once.
