Which cake slices to try in Vienna at: Cafes Demel, Central, and Sacher
The cake slices I've seen in pictures look like ones I've never tried in my life. And I dig how they put the transparent plastic papers on the sides.
Which cake slices to try, beyond the traditional Sacher Torte?
We liked the Esterhazy Torte at Demel. Of the two we tried it was better. I don't know what the other was but it was overly sweet.
The Russian punch cake (punchetorte?) at Demel, at least I think it was there. So good! It can vary a lot from place to place, with some having a little fruit jam layer in them. However, this one was just vanilla cake, pastry cream I believe, and rum. perhaps meringue too if I recall. The other cake I had there with coffee buttercream was too mild for me, and not nearly as moist, but good for what it was.
