Specialty Austrian Sachertorte

21 Sep

I received a special request for an Austrian Sachertorte. It was invented by Franz Sacher for Prince Metternich who requested a special dessert for important guests he was expecting (Wikipedia).

Sachertorte is a not overly sweet chocolate dessert cake, filled and glazed with apricot glaze, and then covered in glaze from bitter chocolate. Traditionally it is served with unsweetened whipped cream.

I decorated the glazed cake with a flower spray from ivory and chocolate fondant.

From the customer I received this feedback, which to me meant a lot to hear from Sachertorte experts:

Hello Regina
I meant to drop you a note the other day to let you know that your cake was a big success. My mother said it was the best Sacher she had ever had! It was wonderfully moist (I have had some very dry ones as has she) and so flavourful. Thank you so much for your contribution to a very successful party.
