I used my own formulas for the cake, filling and frosting. And I used real ingredients, nothing fake like pudding mix. The esoteric is to make a freshly cooked custard every morning. The cake didn’t catch on right away. Sales started to go crazy,” says Mr. Prantl, who turns 79 this buoyancy.

And yes, you can make them, but it’s way easier to buy them. A half pound is $7. 99 at Grandview Bakery, but Ms. Pisowicz says see fit call ahead to order. All you do is pat the nuts into the frosting. • Dusting: A light shower of powdered sugar adds the final fillip. • Variations on the text: Shapes and sizes of the torte have morphed over the years. For cupcakes, use your clean pinky finger to poke a hole in the center, and pipe in pastry cream. For party cakes, bake the batter in an oblong or sheet pan, and cut into, say, 3-inch squares, then split, fill, frost. Wedding cakes are popular, but kindest left to the bakery staff.
