Tort Wafer

Labels: , , ,

I saw on Amazon.com large wafer sheets from Croatia called tort wafers for making a layer cake called oblatne or oblaten. I'm always game to try new recipes specially sweet ones so I got 2 packages of 5 sheets each.

I meant to make the oblatne cake first but got crazy and made a copycat green tea "Kit Kat" with one sheet which I cut into 4 equal pieces. I have read about Japanese Kit Kat years ago and been waiting for them to become available here in the US. Amazon started selling but it takes 2 to 3 weeks to arrive because they will come from Japan by way of Singapore or Thailand, and the price for a 4 ounce package is just ridiculously high. I can live without it because I can sure make a copycat.

For the filling I just combined butter, powdered sugar, and matcha and dipped the pieces in melted white chocolate mixed with matcha. It was okay but waaay too sweet and I piled it on too thick. Serious mistake. Next time for filling I'll just mix matcha with melted milk chocolate and brush it on the layers.

I made the filling too thick, my teeth hurt from all the sugar
