Here is the last chapter of my Dobos Torte story. The cake has been frosted in my freezer awaiting Christmas------and I think it was a success! The picture doesn't define the layers and I left off the carmelized sugar topping. I wasn't sure how to do that(my Mom didn't put it on either) and I didn't want to experiment with my Christmas dessert. So end of story-------and I am quite proud. I did a little research and the torte goes back to the mid 1800's when it was developed by a famous chef in Hungary. Most people assume it was called Dobos Torte(or drum cake as Dobos means drum) however the last name of the chef was Dobos. So-there you have it. The tradition will continue in my family into the next generation at least because I plan on teaching my sons how to make it. And look at the beautiful background. My sister in law, Lisa, knitted a set of dishclothes and they are gorgeous!!
