Hey again everybody!

New cake to share! My husband’s best friend’s birthday was last week and asked me to make a Black Forest cake.  He’s French and tried desperately to find me an old family recipe, but couldn’t.  He described almost exactly Rose’s Swiss Black Forest cake with a few modifications… but here goes!  He’s coming over tomorrow to celebrate, so I’ll have sliced cake pictures soon.  I couldn’t wait to post this!

I used the moist chocolate genoise cake, but doubled it so there are four layers of cake.  I had to double the recipe for super stabilized whipped cream for the inner layers, and sunk the brandied cherries into two layers.  I used the chocolate syrup recipe with Godiva liquor and a teaspoon of cherry extract to moisten the genoise.  I also used Rose’s chocolate ganache recipe (I had leftovers from a previous cake) and poured a layer on the top of the cake to run down the sides.  Fresh cherries are on top along with chocolate flakes.  Hope it tastes good!

If it tastes as good as it looks (and I’m sure it does ) it must be stunning!  Wish I was a guest at the party! :lol:
