ybunny and I spent about 3 hours of today making a cake.

Not just any cake...a Sachertorte.

I first had this cake in Vienna at the Hotel Sacher. A small piece costs about €10.
But, oh...it is so worth it.

Well, ybunny bought me a cook book on Monday, I figured that I'd start out with a bang.

The cake is made from tons of chocolate with a layer of apricot jam in the middle and soaked in a citrus rum sauce and iced with tempered chocolate. ybunny is very good a tempering chocolate, unsurprisingly.

We made the Sachertorte for a late birthday cake for our friend C, who is my goddaughter's mother.

We're going to surprise her with it tomorrow (well, unless neepheid is feeling Grinch-like and spoils the surprise!).

That sounds like what I had at Chocolate Heaven in Edinburgh. It was 99% chocolate, 1% cake.
