Black Forest Cake
Total TimePrep: 40 min. + chilling Bake: 30 min. + cooling
This is my official Christmas dessert!!! Very time intensive, but well worth the effort. I use raspberry or strawberry filling since I dislike cooked cherries....I also use a box cake mix... It's just easier.
I followed the recipe as written....when it was time for the cream filling it was too stiff. When it was time for the chocolate filling it was too soft. Have not yet tasted it but it was not easy to do.
I was really looking forward to this being a great cake and was very disappointed. The cream filling is the worst part of it. You make this rim with it and then when you go to eat it it is hard and not too tasty. Also, the cherry part did not get real thick when I cooked it and I followed the directions to a t! I will not make this again.
This cake is so decadent and delicious!! I made this for my boyfriend's birthday and for Easter and both times it was fantastic. I have two things I would caution you on, however. First, this recipe is very very rich so if you don't like that sort of thing you might not like this. Second, it is very important to not be rushed when making this or your cake will run all over the place. Make sure you chill when it says chill. Also, my cherry layer oozed over the sides so you might want to place the cake on a larger plate or something to catch the mess, but I promise it is sooo worth the time!!
This is awesome I make as a birthday cake for my husband an a friend they love it
