Napolean Cake

This one always causes confusion. If you do some research you will find a whole host of definitions.

Apparently this cake may not of had French origins as you may perceive. I had a quick look around on the internet myself, and found that the one we call a “French Vanilla Slice” is sometimes referred to as a  “Russian Napolean” or a “Napoleon”.

Also not to be confused with a “Neapolitan” Cake (refer to our other post) .

So what do we call a “Napolean Cake”.

We sandwich a Light Vanilla Sponge Cake between a top and bottom layer of our Puff Pastry.

To hold this together we use a coating of Raspberry/Plum Jam, and a layer of our whipped Mock Cream.

On top we Ice the cake with our whipped Sugar Icing.

This is then packaged as a bar cake.
