A favorite of the Russian expatriates living in Scandinavia, this fabulous torte is so popular that Finland’s largest confectionery firm, Fazer, produces it commercially. The name comes from its topping, tyanuchki, an old-fashioned white fudge that is left to cook for long hours until thick and caramel colored. So sleek is this topping, it looks like liquid marble. Serve the torte in small portions. It is very, very rich.
