Why the name 'bubblecake'?

A very good question and we're glad you asked! When coming up with a name, an analogy was discussed comparing learning languages with baking a cake.  A doodle of the word 'cake' was sketched inside a speech bubble and bubblecake was born.  Besides that, we like the way it sounds!
