For the cake, beat the yolks with half the sugar at medium speed until they change color and fluff. Add the almond essence and add the butter.

Pour the mixes into cake molds of 22 cm in diameter, previously greased and floured. Bake for 20 minutes or until when inserting a toothpick, it comes out clean. Chills and releases.
For the bitumen, add the butter with the icing sugar, add the vanilla essence and the cream to beat.
Divide the bitumen into 4 small bowls and paint one with 3 droplets of dye, another with 2 and the third with 1, leave the room without color. Mix very well. Refrigerate the bitumen 10 minutes before use.
Coat the cake in layers starting with the darkest color all the way down and ending with the lightest one. Cover with the bitumen using the darkest color and the lightest color to the top.


Cut a slice and take it out a bit so that when presenting the cake, look inside.


If the bitumen is too thick you can add an extra teaspoon of whipping cream.
