Layer-Cake Ruins is the sandy second world of Super Mario 3D Land II, lying directly north of Egg Island. It has various desserts within the world, such as giant cakes (with one giant cake in the world map), giant melting ice cream cones, Egyptian pyramids, and a sphinx. The first part of the name is derived from a type of cake with multiple layers, held together by frosting. The second part is a reference to the similarities between "desert" and "dessert". The boss of this world is Reznor. There are also giant Moai statues in a sea of sand, which also appear in some levels and in the world map. There are 9 levels in this world, with 7 normal levels, a secret level, and the Castle level. After the boss level is cleared, a path opens to Frosted Tundra.
