I'm reading all over the place that you are torting your layers...and/or filling your layers.
Is there a difference? What does it mean to torte?
Hi there, as far as I know, its the same thing.
Let me tell you how dumb I used to be. I started decorating about 8 years ago just for my kids and stuff. Well when I first did any stacked cakes I just set one on top of the other with out frosting or filling or anything. When I look back I think how could I have been that dumb. I wondered why when I cut into mine it didn't have that niced layered look........ Now I know. Is torting when you cut a cake into layers and then fill in between those layers? I'm not sure I think it's basically the same. All I know is you must put something between the layers
Torting: cutting a layer of cake horizontally to make multiple layers of cake
Filling: adding some sort of product in between the layers - ex: buttercream, fruit curd, mousse, etc - to basically "glue" the layers together
