Black Forest Cake
Dave was gone last weekend, he was in moose camp. We had some friends from out of state that spent the week in camp and they all came back Sunday to head back home. I had dinner ready and this cake for dessert.
This was another cake from GBBO (The Great British Bake Off), and I was happy to have an excuse to need a cake. Our friend has a giant sweet tooth!
I was happily baking while watching football, got the cakes out of the oven, cooled them on top on my Hoosier, so Mooree couldn't reach them, and made the cherry filling. Once the cakes were cooled, I put them on the table and turned to get a long knife to split the cakes. I turned back to see Morree almost finishing one of the cakes, chocolate crumbs all over the table and floor and Tek and Lily happily licking up the mess.
I think I might have yelled bad words.
I picked up the untouched cake, put it back on the top of the Hoosier, cleaned up the mess and started another cake. Good thing I started early and had lots of time to bake and let the cake cool.
So they did have cake for dessert and I was pretty happy with the way it turned out. I think Mooree was pretty happy with it too.
Black Forest Cake
I used this recipe: Also the Crumbs Please
Changes I made:
I doubled the cake recipe, make two cakes and cut each in half.
I added an extra cup of heavy cream for a total of 4, when I made the whipped cream topping.
I used Ghirardelli melting chocolate for the chocolate shards and the trees. I made the chocolate too thick for the shards, next time I know thinner is better and I piped the trees from a little ziplock baggie.
