Ask them about 'Spiku' and there will be a conversation until the cows come home I have seen many types of 'Spiku' and they all look great but since this is the first for me have to have a go for the original which consists of three layers of very moist and dense sponge type cake with the chocolate layer cake in the middle, sandwiched between two golden sponge cake. Every layer require 10 egg yolks!!!!!!!. Shocking but yes, without any egg whites, the texture of the cake is soft, moist and rich. Good european butter added extra richness and i should say, it's a requisite.
