daring bakers dobos torta

   Wow, another month gone by and another daring baker's challenge down. I'm down to the wire again considering I just finished this cake only hours ago but this Dobos torta did turn out to be one super sweet layered up piece of chocolatly goodness. Chocolate buttercream layered under six layers of sponge cake wrapped in hazelnuts and topped with caramel, mmm...

yeah... and I burnt my caramel a little... still good, still good!

 The August 2009 Daring Bakers' challenge was hosted by Angela of A Spoonful of Sugar and Lorraine of Not Quite Nigella. They chose the spectacular Dobos Torte based on a recipe from Rick Rodgers' cookbook Kaffeehaus:  Exquisite Desserts from the Classic Caffés of Vienna, Budapest, and Prague.
