Velvety raspberry paste refines this third variation of the imperial Viennese Cake, our homemade Austrian pastry: the Imperial Torte. A delicate, fruity note brings light pleasure and reminds of mild summer days. Sweet marzipan completes the incomparable aroma of this confectionery jewel.
Once the private residence of Duke Philipp of Württemberg, this magnificent palais turned into Hotel Imperial Vienna on the occasion of the World’s Fair in 1873.
According to legend, the Imperial Torte Vienna has been created from the Imperial Hotel’s young kitchen servant Xaver Loibner in occasion of the grand opening of the Hotel Imperial in 1873. Since then, the unique Viennese confection in typical quadratic shape, is handmade in great passion by masters of the Hotel. Once, created to emperor Franz Josef I, this unique Austrian chocolate almond cake represents the tradition and culture of Vienna and delights people all over the world.
