Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Mozart torte

    • Jenny on May 06, 2018

      I'm in the mountains so I'm not sure if this made a difference in cooking time - but my cake was done in 20 minutes. So be aware that 30/35 minutes may be too much. I made an almond cream instead of pistachio - and it was really delicious - everyone including our guests loved it - and asked to take a slice or two home - a sure sign of a winner.

  • Blueberry lemon ricotta tea cake

    • bwhip on April 26, 2019

      Very good cake, both warm out of the oven and the next day. I wasn't quite sure what to expect with the somewhat unconventional recipe, which included a 335 degree baking temperature, 3 tablespoons of cornstarch, and four teaspoons of baking powder, but it turned out really great. Tall, flavorful, with a firm yet moist crumb structure, with a nice crispy edge around the perimeter. I think next time I'd add a bit more lemon zest to give it just a little more lemon flavor.

  • Opera cake

    • bwhip on February 17, 2019

      Exceptional cake, just heavenly. Light as a feather - both the cake and the whipped coffee cream. Definitely brings tiramisu to mind. My ganache didn’t quite drip down the sides like the one in the cookbook, I’ll have to work on that technique. Still, it wound up looking beautiful and tasting even better. One of my favorite cakes I’ve ever made.

  • Dacquoise fraisier

    • bwhip on August 22, 2020

      Wonderful summer cake. The cake layers are wonderful, soft and light with crispy edges, and the ratio of cake to cream to berries is quite perfect. For such a dramatic and beautiful presentation, it’s actually pretty simple to make and put together.

Eastern Europe features moist cakes with creamy fillings such as Chocolate Kievsky Torte, a decadent cake with layers of chocolate sponge cake and hazelnut meringue. Western European delicacies are light and elegant, inspired by French pastries such as Strawberries & Cream Crepe Cake or Crème Brulee Cheesecake. Then there are the Southern-inspired cakes featuring tiramisu, cheeses and fruits; Central indulgences including hearty, dense chocolate cakes and velvety bundts; and finally Northern treats that are soft, buttery and perfect to accompany afternoon tea.
