This Ukrainian waffle cake is a cinch! It’s so easy, I bet you could make it simply by viewing the pictures. I just wish I could find a resource for the wafers online. Alas, I’ve only been able to find them at Russian or European stores. Poke around; you probably have one nearby.

However, these wafers are now sold in a California Walmart (near Rancho Cordova). I guess the Russian/Ukrainian population is so large, they even have a Russian section in Walmart. Lucky!! Once you buy the wafers; this will be the easiest cake you’ve ever made. And it’s quite fabulous!

1 package plain wafers – round or square (9 layers, 9-inch diameter)

2. Spread cream on the wafers, making sure to reach the edges. Don’t be concerned with filling each square or you will have too much frosting on the cake. Just put enough to have the layers stick. You may make 2 skinny cakes or 1 tall one. They do stack nicely when they aren’t as tall.

3. Place cake under a heavy cutting board or make a press using a cutting board with a bowl of water on top. Let it sit under the press at least 2 hours. Then, slice it up (Ukrainian style) and make sure you grab a slice. They go quickly!!
