I am looking for an 'idiot's guide' to making the honey cake they sell at 'Yolki Polki' i.e the type that's layered with wafer/biscuit and cream. Is there a special name for it in Russian?

I know the one - pretty tasty!

I think it would be pretty difficult (or at best time-consuming) to make because of the layers.

BUT

If I remember correctly, Yolki Palki at Tretyakovskaya has a shop on the lower floor which sells everything on the menu to take home, including that very cake!!

Medovik?

Almost, but it's very different to those rectangular Medovik cakes that you can get in supermarkets.

It's more like a gatueau with pastry type layers...

OK I'll pop in and see.

Still wouldn't mind having a stab at it. I'm sure that all that time and effort is well worth it! Down to the very last crumb!

The problem is that there seems to be so many variations of Medovik so pretty difficult finding the right one in a cookbook. :(
