Tarte Tatin

An accidental creation of the Tatin sisters has brought a delicious upside down fruit dessert known as the Tarte Tatin or Tatin Tart. Who doesn’t like a good upsidedown cake? The story goes that one of the two sisters in an atempt to save a pie whose crust was burning on the top flipped the pie crust down and served it to the guests. The guests received the pie with great delight and the regional dish was said to have been invented.

Whether you love Angel Food Cake, Devil’s Chocolate, Cherry Cheese Cake or Carrot Cake we’re here to whet your appetite. Get those glands salivating because we’re offering delicious recipes and commentary on the best cakes in the world. I’m partial to a good German Peach Kuchen or a French Wedding Cake. I love the American Ice Cream Cake and the Russian Ptichi Moloko.
