AB #18 : Blueberry Torte

I have always love challenges especially baking . When I first saw the recipe for Blueberry Torte in one of the cookbook i bought months ago, I was thinking, I should really try this recipe with my own modification . I have never like to bake chocolate sponge cake . No idea why I hate it, so I have change the cake to Super Moist Chocolate Cake that I used to bake all this time.
I have to apologise for my poor photography this time as I am using a different camera this time. I am actually having had time trying to figure out the settings and all. But then its still not the perfect picture that I used to have... LOL... I have been in doubt , as I couldn't make up my mind whether I should post this photos or not. I seriously thinks that the colour is a bit dull. Since I am not good at photos editing, there is not much that I can do to edit all this photos .
This cake turns out to be tasty . Just the right combination . Maybe the next time I'll use vanilla sponge cake instead as this heavy moist chocolate cake really makes it difficult to stack the cake up high as the weight does matter... LOL... if you know what I mean.
