Prince Rainer et famille had been more-or-less regular guests at the Hotel Sacher when visiting Vienna. Therefore, we can reasonably surmise that at least one member might have had to satisfy a developed craving for this renowned cake at home in the Monaco Palace and its environs.

Is the gold-leaf-gilded version served at the Louis XV restaurant in the Hotel de Paris (one of Europe's last really grand hotels) or, perhaps, at the Hotel Hermitage? Neither of these sites would seem entirely plausible, but maybe they'd prepare the dessert upon request.

I was in Salzburg/Austria last weekend and also visited the Hotel Sacher in Salzburg and of course I tried a piece of that famous cake
I had the cake as well (it was ordered and shipped) and sampled it with one I had made out of Maida Heatter's Book of Great Chocolate Desserts and the party guests all preferred the cake I made. I think that says a lot for Maida Heatter's recipe.

I have been to the Sacher bakery/hotel in Vienna, a few months back—I did not like their version very much. Too dry for my tastes. I prefer more dampness and more apricot jam in it.

When I was catering, we used to make Sacher Torte often for special occasion desserts, and would write the name of the birthday person in the molten chocolate on top, rather than "Sacher."

I haven't made the cake in a long time now. Will have to check to see which recipe posted here comes closest to mine.
