The Esterházy is a very traditional Hungarian torta. Named after Paul III Anton, Prince Esterházy (1766-1886), a member of the very rich and powerful Hungarian Esterházy family. During his life he was perhaps the richest man, not actually named King, in all of Europe. Maybe this is why the cake is so rich and luxurious to eat. Our version of this famous torta is made up of layers of toasted walnut cake filled with a magnificent toasted walnut vanilla butter cream, decorated with poured fondant in a distinctive design used specifically for Esterhazy cakes.
