"My mistake on where to add the raspberry liquer I must have missed it last night it was really late (3 AM)and it just said liquer and not rasperry or orange for the sauce my oversite. the final product came out wonderfull though top notch recipe, I was a little scheptical about the sauce at first since it required no reductions but it is perfect especially with a tablespoon (or 2 :) )of Chambord Liqueur Royal will make again possably with Grand Marnier or a mixture of both. Thank You for the qucik corrections also. Fantasitc Site for Recipies keep up the good work."

"there are some problems with the recipie as printed on your website first the prep time and cook times are switched it should read 30 min prep and 1hr cook also there is no mention in the instuctions for when and where to add the orange or raspberry liquer I took a quess and figured it would be in the sauce and not in the actual torte as this is where it usualy go's but some clearification would be nice also you left out the Vanilla in the steps but have it on the list again I took a quess and added it to the tort as this is usualy where it go's. You might want to update this recipie I will post back tomorrow and let you know how it turns out as it is resting in the refigerator for the 12hrs at the moment. i am docking 2 stars for the lack of proof reading."
