Hoffman's Princess Torte

I think it was my friend Bill Christensen who clued me in to Hoffman's in Kirkland, in the Parc Place mall. I mentioned a wonderful cake we eat in Sweden called the Princess Torte, and how I couldn't quite understand why tastes in Brazil and the US seem to be so different.

Well, it turned out there is a local bakery which makes Princess Tortes, and, local tastes aren't that different. Everyone I know who has tried the cake here loves it too.

What I don't understand is why it isn't being sold everywhere, and why Hoffman's isn't the new Costco or something.... ;-)

I'll be ordering one for my daughter Adidi's first birthday party on Saturday, with lots of mmmmmarzipan.

Layers of sponge cake with raspberry jam, whipped cream and Bavarian cream and covered with marzipan
