Esterhazy torte

 is a Hungarian cake named after Prince Paul III Anton Esterhazy de Galantha (1786–1866), a member of the Esterhazy dynasty and diplomat of the Austrian Empire. It was invented by Budapest confectioners in the late 19th century and soon became one of the most famous cakes in the lands of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.

Esterházy torta consists of 6 layers of hazelnut meringue, sandwiched together by hazelnut buttercream.  The torte is iced with a fondant glaze and decorated with a characteristic chocolate striped pattern.

A popular variant are Esterházy Schnitten: while a Torta is always of round shape, Schnitten are made in square shape.

Whether round of square, we love it!

Stay sweet
