Comment on dobos torte by Greta

I made this for my dad’s 70th birthday today, and it’s fabulous. I made it the same dimensions as Deb, using a quarter sheet pan. I frosted all 12 layers (didn’t trouble myself with the caramel top) Even spreading micro thin layers of frosting between layers I barely had enough to coat the outside, and I wish I’d had even 3 tablespoons more to pretty it up a bit, but otherwise I couldn’t be happier with the results.

"People like me – who have Asperger’s syndrome and autism, who don’t follow social codes – we are not stuck in this social game of avoiding important issues."

"We dare to ask difficult questions. It helps us see through the static while everyone else seems to be content to role-play."  Said Greta Thunberg, quoted in "Greta Thunberg: ‘Only people like me dare ask tough questions on climate’" (The Guardian). Thunberg believes her condition helps her look at the world and see what others cannot, or will not, see. She dislikes small talk and socialising, preferring to stick to routines and stay “laser-focused”. And her ability to concentrate fiercely is...
