Ukrainians pride themselves on baking the best tortes, and Walnut Torte is one of the most traditional ones.
Tortes require time and patience, as you can see from reviewing this recipe, but it is a labor of love, and well worth the effort.
If you love Tortes, but have been looking for a lighter filling, rather than the traditional butter cream one, this is a great recipe for you. The cake layers are very thin, and the filling is mostly apples, with a nice caramel glaze.
I really enjoy weddings with numerous special traditions, intertwined with the usual wedding traditions, such as the cutting of the wedding cake, the garter and bouquet tossing, the mother-son dance, the father-daughter dance, etc.
