Chocolate Wafer Torte

These wafers come in the size of 11 1/2 inch x 18 inch and have 5 layers. It is so convenient especially when you need to have a cake and do not have time to bake. All that is required is to assemble and viola - you will have the biggest 'Kit Kat' I do not know where i could get them when i ran out as a dear friend moved to Dubai and left me 3 pieces. I don't know why it is spelled as Tort Wafers as i have always spelled Tort with a silent 'e'

I find these wafer layers in smaller European butcher/bake shops here in Toronto. Actually I just bought some two days ago in a fine cheese store. Address on packaging is www.sf-foods.com
Hope this helps. Good luck!
