Count the ridges

Today, since it was Mother's Day, I made myself a strawberry torte. My mom used to make this all the time when strawberries were in season. The cake mix always made 2 tortes. That may seem like a lot. But divide that by 11 or more and no one gets more than a regular slice. Well, as kids, none of us wanted to get a smaller slice than anyone elses. So my mom would count those ridges on the cake and cut it so that everyone had the same number and thus the same size slice. We all double counted just to be sure. Anyway, just a little flash back as I was slice up this torte after dinner.

Your mom taught me to make these tortes too - and I still have the pans. But I haven't made it in years and years.
