I came across an article about this unique cake. Anyone know of an Eatern European bakey that has this treat?

      Sorry, I've never seen it in the DC area but there is a whole place dedicated to them in Chicago, newly opened in case you're ever in the neighborhood. I went to check on a relative and stumbled across it:
