Sachertorte is Austrian, and is named after the confectioner Franz Sacher, whose son Eduard developed the recipe into the cake we know today. It is said to have first been made in 1832, at a dinner hosted by Prince Metternich. Rich and dense, it is coated with dark chocolate icing, and has its own national day on 5th September.
Torta caprese is Italian, named after the island of Capri, where it was served to tourists in hotels. Instead of flour, it uses ground almonds; according to one local legend, it came about by accident when a baker forgot to use flour in his cake.
