Romanian Fanta Cake recipe

Fanta Cakes

This name ‘Fanta Cakes’ sounds strange, doesn’t it? This is certainly a unique recipe that I encourage everybody to try at least once. With the perfect brownie bottom, contrasted with sweet but slightly sour cream cheese and topped with a Fanta jelly, this is a treat many Romanians remember from their childhood. It is hard not to remember it after seeing such impressive plating and colors!
