I can honestly say this is top 3 of any dessert I've ever made, especially considering the warm weather. And it is much easier than it looks. The best part is that it's absolutely huge — I fed 6 grown adults sizable amounts of this dessert and there was more than half leftover. Enjoy!!
- 1 box white cake mix
- Water, vegetable oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box
- 1 pint (2 cups) mango sorbet, softened
- 1 pint (2 cups) strawberry sorbet, softened
- 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- Garnish, if desired
- Lime peel twists
- Fresh strawberries
- Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 15x10x1-inch pan (this is essentially a very shallow baking pan that you would use for cookies) with baking spray with flour. Line with waxed paper; spray waxed paper.
- In large bowl, make cake mix as directed on box, using water, oil and egg whites. Pour into pan. Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan to cooling rack; remove waxed paper. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
- Cut cake crosswise into 3 equal sections. On long serving platter, place 1 section, rounded side down. Spread mango sorbet evenly over top. Place another cake section onto the sorbet; press down. Spread with strawberry sorbet. Top with remaining cake section; press down (gently). Cover lightly; freeze about 2 hours or until firm.
- In large bowl, beat frosting ingredients with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Frost sides and top of torte. Freeze about 1 hour or until firm. Just before serving, garnish top with lime peel and strawberries. To serve, let stand at room temperature 10 minutes. Cut torte in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise 7 times to make a total of 16 slices.
