Tips

Assembling Terrific Tortes

Assembling Terrific Tortes

Since tortes are made up of several layers of cake and filling, their assembly is as much a part of the preparation as mixing and baking. It's best to chill the cake so you can easily split it into horizontal layers. Use a long, serrated knife for a clean cut and to minimize crumbs. If you notice that your cake is slightly domed, horizontally slice a thin layer off to make it easier to assemble your torte.
