Cherry-Fudge Brownie Torte

PhotobucketThe rain played havoc with my photography today. I should have finished the cherry fudge brownie torte yesterday, but was out of town visiting my sister. Yesterday was beautiful; today is dark, dreary and pouring rain. Now that the time will be changing soon, I must begin using my lighting equipment that I bought awhile back. I threw open all the shutters, pulled out reflector boards and mirrors to get the photos for this Tuesdays with Dorie edition chosen by April of short+rose who has the recipe on her blog.PhotobucketI halved the recipe and used 4 x 1-3/4-inch springform pans that I bought at Michaels. Not wanting to search for mascarpone, I made the faux version suggested by Rachelle of Mommy, I’m Hungry. It tastes pretty good; in fact, I could have ditched the cake and eaten the faux mascarpone! This is a great cake for guests as it can be made a day ahead. Check out the TWD blogroll to see what lovely cakes our Dorie bakers have come up with.

    I'm with you – when the weather starts going, chances for good photos diminish quickly! Your torte looks fabulous though!

    Wow! I wasn't hungry, but after I saw this post my mouth started to water. I wondered where I could find a small spring foam pan. There is a Michael's by my house – I'll definately check it out.~Camberley

    The little torte looks great! Your photos are stunning. We are in a semi in Canada and get little natural light. We end up using a desk lamp and a piece of cardboard wrapped in tin foil. One day we'll have real equipment!

    I would give anything for some form of natural light, but until then, I'll just ogle your amazing photos and That said, your take on Dorie's Cherry-fudge brownie tart rocks! I could eat the whole thing in one sitting! WTG!
