Fantastic honey cake (Medovik)

It not as complicated as it looks. This honey cake (Medovik) is so soft and fantastic. The honey baked into the cake layers pairs perfectly with the simple sour cream frosting.

6. Let the dough chill for 5-10 minutes, then split into 9-10 equal parts. It depends on the diameter of the cake. I usually make 10 layers for a 20 cm round cake and 9 layers for a 24 cm one.
