LOOKING for: traditional napoleon cake recipe

xpost from cooking and desserts..

Hi All -

Its my husbands birthday and he loved napoleons. He was telling me that his parents knew a bakery that made a napoleon cake. I have been searching for recipes - but I don;t really know what I am looking for?

Does anyone have a recipe for a napoleon cake? or a good recipe for napoleons? I thought if I couldn;t make a cake I would make napoleons. But he wants more of a traditional napoleon and not one with berries and such.

Thanks so much.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
