It's May 20th which means it's my wedding anniversary! It's also the day for my Cake Slice Bakers reveal. We continue to bake from Roger Pizey's World Class Cakes book. All of the choices this month looked enticing, but as May is also the month of my favorite helper's birthday, and she only has one flavor, the Sacher Torte was my obvious choice.
The Sacher Torte is a deep chocolate cake covered in chocolate ganache. I made the cake almost as described. I used bittersweet chocolate (60%) instead of the 70% called for in the recipe because of the expense. Traditionally, the cake has the letter S or the word Sacher on top, but ours had a letter L for Laura.
