One of the most delicious, lightest, and easiest to prepare cakes that can be prepared in different ways is "Napoleon". The dessert cream can be made with different flavors by simply adding berries or vanilla. It's worth noting that the cake base doesn't have to be baked, replacing it with plain pita bread, but this is more suitable for a salty "Napoleon".
