Ritz&Mochi Torte

Ritz&Mochi : a flavor that sneaks up on you, and makes you fall in love with its unexpected combination.

Salty (Ritz), Gooey (Mochi) with a hint of fresh Orange. The simple execution of this cake is a plus, its taste….priceless. Rich, firm but soft, with a mouthfeel that is super fudgy. Hence, it elevates this from cake to torte. Give it a try.
