Old Fashioned Stack Cake

I love the history behind this cake. I had never heard of a "Stack Cake". Here is a little history behind the "Stack Cake". Because cakes were so expensive back in the days of old. Whenever there was a gathering like a barn dance. Families would each prepare a layer of this special ginger and molasses cake to donate to the shindig. It is said that the number of layers in a cake was a measure of the popularity of the hosting family. Sometimes there would be as many as twelve layers!
