…or, in other words, my renamed attempt of a six layer toffee torte to the reference above because, in the same fashion as an Olympic figure skater going for the triple sow cow but only hitting the double, I chickened out big time. We can’t all be perfect on the first try, right?
Anyway, we attended our neighborhood supper club last night and I was in charge of bringing the dessert. It was our first time with this group of people and I wanted to make a good impression. Hence, the six layer toffee torte was born. This is not a torte for slouches! It took me the better part of the day to make. In fairness to the amount of time it took, I will say that I did give it a few extras to pretty it up. Ok, on to the cake. Here’s what you’ll need:

This seriously looks delicious. How come you haven't gotten any comments yet!!?? I love cake and then three layers of chocolate with brown sugar and toffee bits?! I'm literally drooling. I'm sure the people attending your supper club thought the same. Awesome Job and great photos.
I don't know if I'd ever have the patience to make this. It just reminds me of old school cooking, you know when people actually prepare their own food.
Personally, I'm more of a short order cook, salsa and chips are my saving grace, herring, and for desert the best I can do are Pillsbury chocolate chip cookies.
Can I have a slice?
Absolutely you can have a slice! The only problem is we already ate it all. 😉 Thanks so much for your kind words! I really had fun with this cake. It did take me quite a bit of time to put it all together, but oh my goodness was it worth it.
Oh, and don't knock chips and salsa. I could eat an entire bag and keep going. Probably why I don't keep them in the house on a regular basis! Thanks for checking it out!
