Well, well, well. I’ve done it. I’ve achieved cake nirvana. I am prepared for The Great Beyond, now, thanks. There is nothing left in this world for me to experience, because I’ve already eaten the best cake attainable. Hasta luego mis amigos, Sacher Torte is all I need for the rest of my life.
I’m being dramatic, but actually, this cake is amazing. Each component is perfectly balanced to support and heighten each new taste, and the Austrians knew what they were doing when they invented this cake. Let me rewind just a little….Sacher Torte is an Austrian cake. The flavor profile is chocolate, apricot, rum, and cream. The Austrians, who, for quite a long time, made their wealth in sugar plantations, know their way around a good sweet. Seriously, these people ruled in sweets.
And Yamato knew what she was doing when she made this treat for Takeo. Dang guys, this girl has skillz. She seems so innocent and sweet, but clearly she is a master temptress with this dessert. Seriously, if someone made me delicious cakes I would be theirs forever, no questions asked.
