Looking for recipe for cake that is like Venetian cookies

Steebs | Oct 9, 2008 06:35 AM

When I was a kid a local bakery had a very tall layer cake that was cut into rectangular pieces about an inch wide. The cake had bright multicolor layers, just like the Venetian or Italian wedding cookies, with thin jam filling between layers. It was super moist and dense, I think a slice weighed half a pound (ok, that was an exaggeration!) and was frosted on the top in a white frosting. I've been looking for the recipe for years now. Someone I worked with once said she used to work in a bakery and they called them junk cakes. If anyone has a recipe I would be forever grateful! Thanks
