The October Daring Bakers’ challenge was brought to us by Korena of Korena in the Kitchen. She took us to Austria and introduced us to the wonders of the Sachertorte.
Well, while most of the steps to make a Sachertorte are not too difficult, once again I had to learn, that chocolate glazing and I aren't best friends… While last time it was too runny and didn't properly solidify, this time it was too thick and hardened within seconds of pouring it on the cake. This gave my cake a rather rustic finish - so to speak - and I didn't think trying to pipe the word "Sacher" on it would have made it any better…
The taste was good, though. The cake was actually lighter and fluffier than I remembered Sachertorte usually to be, and while a little whipped cream was nice to go along with it, it wasn't absolutely necessary as the cake was moist enough by itself.
