my mom's side of the family is from Slovenija (the upper most part of former yugoslavia-but you probably know, being on a Polish website!). Growing up, we would go to Belgrade bakery near 9mile rd. on Van Dyke and get it. I've been craving it for years, but just haven't gone in and gotten one. I'm pretty sure they still sell it. The bakery was called "Ethnic Bakery" the last I saw. They sell Yugoslavian products- the owners, as far as I know, are Serbian. We "Yugoslavians" share many similarities with Polish people. If you want to surprise your husband, go to Ethnic Bakery and pick one up! BTW, our Seven Sisters Cake is 7 layers of yellow cake, with a pink and chocolate filling in between them and the entire cake, or "torta", is covered in a chocolate shell. Yum!!! It is fairly small, but goes a long way. If I could make it as good as the bakery, I'd make it every week!!! Good luck!!!
