Imperial Torte - A sweet piece of Vienna

Sweet Greetings from Vienna

Legends has it that a young apprentice cook called Franz-Xaver Loibner created the recipe of the Imperial Torte. It was the year of the opening of the Hotel Imperial, 1873. And it was in honour of his Imperial Highness, Emperor Franz Josef I. That much about the myth. A matter of fact is its distinguished taste. The first thing you literally come across is its delicious milk-chocolate glaze. The trip down to the heart of the cake goes through almond flavour, marzipan and a slight hint of cocoa creme. All this together leads to a delightful crescendo of taste.

Natural ingredients make this handmade cake a heavenly experience. It can be stored for weeks and is a favourite present, shipped in its wooden boxes all over the world.

The dark side of Imperial Torte: "Schwarze Orange

The original Imperial Torte revealed its dark side by the name of Schwarze Orange. Sliced almonds in six crispy layers filled with chocolate/coffee cream are encased in dark chocolate. Dried peel of exquisite citrus fruits is the basis for the delicious orange marzipan.

The Imperial Torte Schwarze Orange is hand-made at the Hotel Imperial. Just like the original Imperial Torte, it is composed of exclusively natural ingredients. Cooled, the square piece of Viennese confectionary has a shelf life of eight weeks.
