How to make a beautiful classic strawberry torte: A recipe from the ’60s
Isn’t this a dainty dish to set before your queen?
Luscious is the word for this strawberry torte “fit for a queen.” And the queen is Mother on her special day, Mother’s Day.
A final topping of swirled whipped cream and whole strawberries, those heart-shaped bites of sweetness, add the final touch of elegance for Mom’s special dessert.
Despite its elaborate appearance, this torte is simple enough that even a child, with a little help, can prepare it. The cake may be baked, and with the help of big sis or father, the two layers may be split into four. Then it’s merely whipping cream and slicing strawberries for the filling and the topping.
What nicer way to say, “I love you, Mom,” than with an easy to fix — yet elegant — strawberry torte.
