When I was a young'n, those seasonal little debbie zebra cake heart things were just about the most enthralling thing ever. They only showed up in february, they were pink, they were tiny, they were cute, and they had so many layers! our grocery store used to have a big plate of them out at the front for customers and I remember finding it so enchanting and savoring every bite of these fun magic cakes. They felt like something out of Alice in Wonderland.
Then I grew up. I forgot about them. I didn't have them for years. and I rediscovered them as a college student and realized how crappy they were and became a bit jaded. So last year I decided to make my own version of them, with dark chocolate, angel cake, custard, and strawberry compote. the results were pretty great, and I think I'd like to make it a family tradition! sorry, I don't have a recipe to share- i rarely follow them and usually just make things up as i go, but the photos are pretty self explanatory, and the components aren't hard to find recipes for:)
