Judge’s comments:

Entry 178 – Schichttorte Cake

A highly impressive winning cake!   The recipe was essential to help me judge this one and to realise the work that has gone into making it.  You have chosen an unusual cake, requiring patience and skill to achieve the required texture without burning the 20 thin layers of cake mixture under the grill.  Not many cakes for domestic consumption use ten eggs!  You have achieved a high gloss on the chocolate glaze used to coat and add flavour to the cake.  Congratulations.
