When I was a kid my parents had good friends who had emigrated from Ukraine in the 1950's. My parents moved, they lost touch, but I've never forgotten this incredible Ukranian cake that the wife used to make.
I'm dreaming of finding a recipe to be able to recreate it. In the alternative I'm also posting a request for suggestions about where to find this at a bakery in the greater NYC area.
Overall the cake was white/yellow; it had many, many thin layers (I'm guessing 12 or more) that were less cakey and more like a cookie; layers were separated by a creamy filling/frosting that I'm guessing must have had had condensed milk in it; it was sweet, but not cloyingly so; it was maybe 5" high.
