While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Vienna waits for you - December 5 is National Sachertorte Day!
If you're craving this highly exclusive cake, you'd better put your order in early to ensure delivery by Christmas! The Original Sachertorte, created in 1832, is only made in Vienna and Salzburg, but they're kind enough to ship globally.
The cake itself is made up of two layers of dense chocolate sponge cake, separated by a layer of apricot conserve in the middle and covered with a lush, dark chocolate icing, whipped cream optional. While not overly sweet, the dessert is rich with powerful flavors.
Sacher's torte became a sensation and his son, Eduard, perfected and developed the Sachertorte that is so well-known and loved today.If you don't want to wait for delivery by Vienna, you can always take a stab at creating the Sachertorte yourself with Wolfgang Puck's recipe.
But you might not be able to completely duplicate the icing - the original consists of three special types of chocolate, produced by different companies just for the Sachertorte bakeries. Now that is some exclusive icing!
