I had a vision to create the perfect cake for my birthday, and I came up with this masterpiece. It is chocolate cake on bottom, then Nutella, vanilla cake, cream cheese frosting, strawberry cake, and strawberries with glaze. I love how it looks like Neapolitan ice cream when you slice it! Recipe and directions can be found on my blog:

That looks scrumptious! I love the idea of using Nutella as a frosting layer.

It looks fabulous. Thank you very much for sharing it with us. I wanted to make it a few weeks ago, but I was short on time. So I decided to make a two layer version, strawberry and chocolate. Here in the Netherlands most people don't use artificial flavouring, so I found a recipe for strawberry cake with real strawberries in it: http://adashofsass.com/2009/03/01/homemade-strawberry-cake/ I had no idea how much I would need, so I used one box of frozen strawberries, calculated how much of the other ingredients I needed and ended with a cake that was about twice as high as I needed it. Being even shorter on time than I expected I ended up using only the strawberry layer, covering it with cream cheese and the tastiest strawberries I've encountered this season.

When my thesis is finished I will definitely bake a celebratory cake and make all layers. The recipe with real strawberries is delicious. I used about 60% of the ingredients the first time, so I think 30 or 40 percent is enough for a 24cm/9.5" cake pan. The cake turned out only slightly pink-ish, so adding a few drops of food colouring is wise if you want the spectacular look.

I have just hunted the internet for this. I could remember an epic neopolitan cake. I knew I had seen it, but I didn't know where. I'm so glad I found it! It'll be perfect for my friend's birthday this Saturday. Thanks for sharing Smiley
