Torta Aurora, the favourite cake of Pasticceria Marchesi 1824
Layers of Aurora sponge cake, an incredibly soft and delicious variation of the classic sponge cake with the addition of potato starch and melted butter, are lightly moistened with a syrup made from Bourbon vanilla of Madagascar and alternate with classic pastry cream. All this deliciousness is then covered with a fine layer of whipped cream icing, sponge cake crumbs, and a generous sprinkling of powdered sugar. These are the very simple and perfectly balanced elements of the Torta Aurora by Pasticceria Marchesi 1824 with such a unique flavour at first taste that is impossible to forget.
The birth of the Torta Aurora is practically a mystery, as is the origin of its name, which is probably tied to its golden hue that bring to mind the first rays of sunlight appearing at dawn.
