This gorgeous thing is a layered dessert from Chile. Each layer has dulce de leche. You can also switch out the dulce de leche for pastry cream and whipped cream for the filling instead. Yum! By the way, the English name for this dessert is 'Thousand layers cake.' Sounds like it's something amazing, right?
