About this Recipe

By: Taylor Hart 

Strawberry, chocolate, vanilla. Neapolitan tends to get a bad rep,  I overheard a conversation the other day about how it is such a waste of a flavor just choose one of the flavors instead of combining them all together. for some reason this conversation inspired me to make a delicious cake using the three classic flavors.  I added a little twist to each layer to add something new to this classic.
