Today's Daring Baker post is forthcoming, just as soon as the torte is made. What can I say? It's been a busy month!
The cake is made.
The chocolate is cooling, although that is a relative term since it is nearly 90 degrees inside the house. I had to put the butter back into the refrigerator because it was turning into a liquid.
7 pm (pdt)
Torte is complete and chilling in the refrigerator. The buttercream remains solid about 15 seconds in this heat.
Will photograph, consume, and post after dinner.
I must say, it was a "piece of cake" to make.
Photos will come in the morning. Flash at night doesn't make for attractive pictures.
