National Sachertorte Day!

Origin of this Holiday
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
Why the month of December and why the 5th day??  That's the question...
This holiday is referred to as a "National" day as all food and drink holidays are.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a Food Holiday that is publicized to celebrate.

We found recognition from calendar sites and personal Internet sites that blog and share information about this holiday. We also found reference to this day on sites that asked the question "What is a Sacher Torte?"  We now know it is a chocolate cake; in light of that you may be interested in:

Definition of a Sachertorte Cake
Wikipedia encyclopedia tells us "The cake consists of two layers of dense, not overly sweet chocolate cake (traditionally a sponge cake) with a thin layer of apricot jam in the middle and dark chocolate icing with shreds of chocolate on the top and sides." "It is traditionally served with whipped cream without any sugar in it (Standard German: Schlagsahne, Austrian Standard German: Schlagobers), as most Viennese consider the Sachertorte too "dry" to be eaten on its own."

"The trademark for the "Original Sachertorte" was registered by the Hotel Sacher, which was built in 1876 by the son of Franz Sacher." The recipe is a well-kept secret."

"Until 1965, Hotel Sacher was involved in a long legal battle with the pastry shop Demel, who had also produced a cake called the "Original Sachertorte." Numerous tales have circulated to explain how Demel came by the recipe." "The cake at Demel is now called "Demels Sachertorte" and differs from the "Original" in that there is no layer of apricot jam in the middle of the cake, but directly underneath the chocolate cover."

"There are various recipes attempting to copy the "Original," - For example, at the cultural event "Graz-Kulturhauptstadt 2003", the "Sacher-Masoch-Torte" was presented (its name alluding to Leopold von Sacher-Masoch), a cake unique in that it uses redcurrant jam and marzipan. Sachertorte is made up of chocolate, nuts, apricot, butter, eggs and sugar."
