Do one on Sacher-Torte.
Bloody hermans feck you about though.Cake teaser
Few sweets have as glamorous a history as St Tropez’s signature cake, a sandwich cake consisting of a round, flat-topped sugar-coated brioche filled with an unctuous, orange-flower flavoured cream. The cake was created by Alexandre Micka, a Polish baker who settled on the seaside village in 1955. Film director Roger Vadim happened to be shooting And God Created Woman at the time, starring the sultry Brigitte Bardot, and Micka’s bakery quickly became the crew’s favourite pit stop. Having developed a soft spot for Micka’s treats, Bardot suggested the cake be christened Tarte Tropézienne. A legend was born.
Phwoar.A reminder of what it looks like.
Notes: I have never seen one where the middle has not dipped a little bit. So when cutting to top and bottom it make sure you cut it at the correct height.
Other than that here are a couple of German youtubes to watch.
Aldi or lidl, or if living in north east London, grodzinskies, sorted
Back in the early 90s, the Swiss company that I worked for had an office in Vienna, for whom I did a fair amount of work for a few years. The Austrian MD was a grateful chap of the old school, and sent me an original boxed Sachertorte every Christmas until I left the company. Fantastic.I bought one from the Sacher Hotel in Vienna.
Comes in a wooden box and an extortionate price tag.
Bloody good though.
