Prepare the wooden panel. Spread 1.5 spoons of flour on it and put the dough on it. The dough should be little bit thicker than on the first left photo. Leave it for a while to cool down. Then shape it in a form of a snake and divide into 8 parts.

Prepare your baking pan. Sprinkle it with some flour. Then take one par of the dough and roll it out. The layer should be rather thin. And put it in the baking pan. The convenional oven should be ready by now. It should be heated up to 180oC. Bake one layer for 5-7 minutes. The time depends on the thickness of your layer. Repeat this step with all the dough parts. Totally, you will get 8 layers baked.

#6. Shaping and breadcrumbs

When all layers are ready we are passing to making their shape perfect and getting breadcrumb for the topping of our delicious cake. Take any round object, for example, a saucepan cover. Cut the layer edges so it becomes perfectly round or whaterver shape you want. Collect the cut off pieces. We will need them later for breadcrumbs. Do this with all the layers.

#7. Cream

The cream is the secret ingredient which makes the cake “Madonna” delicious. Mix sour cream and sugar. Then cover each layer with the cream. Here we make two cakes – each of four layers. The top layers should be covered with the cream, too. Also cover the sides of your cake with the cream. In fact, the cream will soak into layers and make the cake rich and delicate.

#8. Breadcrumbs and topping
