A torte is a rich, usually a layered cake that is often made with very little flour. Torte cake recipes have ground nuts or bread crumbs, egg yolks, sugar and stiffly beaten egg whites. Tortes are filled with buttercreams, mousses, jams and other fillings. There can also be savory tortes.
Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
