A couple of issues. First and foremost, It's not a torte, it's a cake. I did not realize that a torte is made with *much* less flour to get that fluffy, almost mousse like quality, after being disappointing with the cake turn out of this (I just dislike the texture of cake, it's like chewing on a sponge), I looked up the difference, but that was disappointing. It's not a torte, it's a cake. Really you could have done the same thing with a box from the store.
Secondly, the icing is WAY too sweet. I mean, i get that people like rich, but it doesn't even taste like chocolate icing, it just happens to be brown.
I can definitely see why some would like this, don't get me wrong. But I wish there was more of a warning about just how incredibly rich and sweet this is, and how it is in no way, what-so-ever a torte.
