Sacher Torte

The Sacher Torte is one of the most well-known specialties of Vienna, Austria. It is a chocolate cake made with a layer of apricot marmelade and chocolate frosting (ganache). 

Region
Vienna, Austria 

History
The cake dates back to 1832. The story goes that the Austrian State Chancellor, Prince Metternich, requested a bakery to create a special dessert which he was going to offer to guests. Metternich was hoping to sway his guests in favor of his political plans and wanted a new dessert to help him. Unfortunately, the owner of the bakery was home, sick in bed, on this day. But Metternich insisted that he couldn't wait for the owner to return. So, Franz Sacher, a 16-year old student-baker interning at the bakery, experimented with different chocolates and cakes, and eventually came up with the Sachertorte. Metternich was very pleased and a new tradition was created.
