This sumptuous layer cake from Smith Island, off the mainland coast of Maryland, here consists of 10 thin layers of cake stacked and frosted with old-fashioned chocolate fudge icing. This recipe calls for baking the layers individually; see How to Make Perfect Layer Cakes for tips on how to ensure each layer is even in thickness so that the finished cake stands evenly tall as well.
