A 2-layered white cake separated by a layer of strawberry jam commonly sliced and served covered with powdered sugar. It is predominantly served on the birthday of the first president of the United States or, failing that, on President's Day. It's origins are thought to go back as far as the Civil War where soldiers were known to Indian leg wrestle for the last piece of "GWC."
