Layer cake or torte – some people toss around the terms interchangeably, but there is a difference, and Jarosch Bakery knows what it is. We’re going to use this article to explain the ways one delicious treat differs from the other.
For starters, a layer cake that you buy at your local bakery in Schaumburg is just what you would expect. It’s a cake made up of layers. The question is, how many? The answer is only two layers and one layer of filling between them.
Now let’s turn our attention to tortes. They are like a supercharged version of layer cakes that you can find at a bakery. Tortes feature multiple layers of cake, with each layer separated by a layer of filling.
That takes care of the inside, but what about the outside? Are they the same? No, not really. Tortes are usually iced with whipped cream, while layer cakes traditionally have icing made of fudge or buttercream. Occasionally a bakery will mix things up and offer a torte with fudge or chocolate buttercream icing.
However, they are made and finished; we are confident of one thing. They are all delicious and the perfect treat for any get-together or holiday gathering.
