Class Overview

Discover accessible techniques for bringing classic European tortes to life with guidance from King Arthur Flour pastry team manager Wilhelm Wanders. To begin, learn how to make Black Forest cake. From building your chocolate genoise layers to filling your torte with cherry brandy-flavored mousse, you'll relish adding this crowd-pleasing dessert to your repertoire. Next, whip up the Sacher torte, an Austrian coffee shop staple. Start with the dense chocolate crumb, add an apricot coating and finish your torte with a cooked chocolate glaze. The Hungarian Dobos torte is next. Find out how to build six free-form layers, fill them with chocolate buttercream and top your torte with an eye-catching caramel fan. Finally, create the always elegant princess torte and finish it with a show-stopping marzipan dome.
