Super moist and delicious traditional cuban cream cake made for special occasions, especially birthdays. This recipe was used by my great grandmother and she passed it down to me. She liked homemade merengue frosting on it but I like to use a cream cheese whipped cream frosting. The filling can be anything you like, make it your own!
