Begin by melting butter in a double boiler over medium heat. Then add sugar and honey and mix until it has a smooth consistency.

First make the dough:

Beat eggs and baking powder in a separate bowl and then add it tot the butter and cook for about 15-20 minutes until the batter becomes fluffy and changes the color to light yellow.

Add the flour and mix for 5 minutes. The batter should be sticky. Then take it off the double boiler.

Section out the dough into 8 equal pieces and then roll out each piece into a thin layer and bake.

Remove from the oven and cut out a perfect circle by placing a plate over the top and tracing with a knife. Save the outside of the circle pieces for decorating the cake later.

Beat the softened butter at high speed until light and fluffy. Add dulce de leche and continue mixing on medium speed until well combined.

Now let's make the frosting:

Spread a generous layer of cream on each layer and place one on top of the other. Then cover the whole cake in a layer of more frosting.

Putting the cake together:

Shred leftover cake pieces in a food processor and sprinkle them over the top of the cake and on the sides For best results, let the cake stand for a few hours before serving..
