Ok, stop laughing at the newbie icon_smile.gif But what are tortes? For the longest time I thought you were all talking about cake fillings! But a thread I just read confused me.
Also, while I'm being the dumb newbie... what is WASC (I think that's it). I'm guessing this is some kind of white cake but I tried to search for the recipe and came up w/ nothing icon_sad.gif
Thanks so much!!!!

Torte=slicing a single cake layer horizontally into 2 or more "layers". Ex. one 2" high layer into two 1" high layers. For the purpose of more fillings, beautiful slices, and taller cakes.

WASC=White Almond Sour Cream -- My current favorite!! Its excellent you have to try it. Lots of variations!

JanH you are always so helpful, I had no idea what was WASC either but was ashamed to ask so I figured: icon_redface.gif if I don't know it is because I don't need it! but now that I know it I need to try it!!! icon_cool.gif

It's a great recipe, has the reliability of a mix but with a more homemade taste. Best of both box & scratch, IMHO. icon_lol.gif

My fav is the almond version with either raspberry or strawberry pastry filling frosted with whipped cream icing:

However, my DH really likes Duncan Hines orange cake (flavored with orange extract) and frosted with Rich's Bettercreme for an orange dreamsicle cake.
