  5. Now, it is high time to cook the topping for your liver cake. You can use any vegetables for the topping, but I prefer frying chopped onions and grated carrots for several minutes, mixing the vegetables from time to time until they are ready.

  6. Wait until the topping cools down a bit and mix it with mayonnaise. Spread the topping on each pancake, forming the multi-layer cake.
