Do you have a special birthday coming up? Or a big event that deserves a super-special main course? Enter: the quesadilla cake. It contains all the tortillas and cheese your heart desires.

This quesadilla cake kind of reminds of mille-feuille, a traditional French dessert that includes thin layers of puff pastry interchanged with pastry cream, whipped cream, or jam. In this recipe, you have thin tortillas instead of puff pastry, and cheese instead of pasty cream.

As you can see in the video, it's not too hard to make a quesadilla cake. You simply layer the warmed tortillas and cheese into a deep cake pan, and then throw the whole layered thing into the oven so it's nice and gooey on the inside.

I can't decide if this is brilliant or just totally insane. Maybe a little of both?
