Food - Recipe - Danish Dream Cake (Drømmekage)

From a very young age I eat this cake at birthday parties as well as normal Victoria sponge type cakes, even though I don't remember it much!! For those on my blog that don't know I was born in Denmark (my parents are English so don't worry) and always go back every few years, less now my dad has retired, we would eat a lot of Frikadeller's and this cake, plus the pastries as well. I decide to re-create it to see if I can do it again!
