Champagne custard cake

Back when I lived in California, I used to get a champagne custard cake from the bakery at a local supermarket.  The original supermarket has now been gone many years, and for the life of me, I CANNOT remember the name of it.  However, after that market closed, I was able to get them at the bakery in Albertson's.  Since moving to New York, I have searched the internet for a recipe and come up empty-handed.  Does anyone know of this cake and/or have a recipe or know where I can get the recipe?  Description-wise, the cake is a two-layer, round, white cake, with a champagne custard "filling" between the layers.  Frosting is white with pink shavings on it, and usually some cherries on top.  Flavor-wise, the best I can come up with is that it tastes...pink.  LOL  Probably calorie laden to the extreme, which is why I always saved it for my birthday.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

Yes, I know, but I don't live in the Napa Valley any more, and somehow I doubt they'd be able to ship me one since I now live in western NY.  That's why I'm trying to find a recipe.
