I love the pictures of the hands! The one where your Grandma's hands are guiding yours (I assume) brings tears to my eyes! Every young woman should be so blessed as to have older hands guiding theirs. Lovely post!
Yes, it was amazing to have Grandma so closely involved in showing us how to make her amazing recipes. I'm so glad that I decided to document these lessons - I will cherish them even more when we can no longer visit her.

Hi Erica!I've followed your old blog since even before you posted this original lesson. I remember when it first showed up a lot of people were angry that your grandmother wouldn't share the recipe! I think some people didn't understand these were special lessons with your sisters, "gifts" from your grandmother, and not done originally as a display for the internet (although we LOVED that you shared the lessons with us). I was thrilled that in reposting you shared a similar recipe so that we could make the torte at home! Just wanted to say thank you!
I love these photos with your grandma's hands. So, so special. I'm disappointed not to have the recipe after you described the cake so lusciously, but thanks for a link to a similar one. Is the whipped cream frosting made with whipped cream?
