Battenburg cake

An oblong sponge cake, made of square cross-sections - generally two pink and two yellow, assembled with jam - the whole being covered by marzipan. It first appeared during the end of the 19th century - possibly being given its present name when Prince Louis of Battenberg (later Louis Montbatten) married Princess Victoria in 1884.
