Finnish Luxurious Bites Cake

Marika Akerlund - National pastor's wife in Finland
This is a recipe for a delicious cake. It takes quite an effort before the cake is finished, but I promise it’s worth it. Your baking pans are probably a different size; choose a similar size and adjust the baking time for the bottom layer.
