Black Forest Cake

Black Forest cake is the English names for the German dessert.... typically, Black Forest cake consists of several layers of chocolate cake, with whipped cream and cherries between each layer....then the cake is decorated with additional whipped cream and cherries and chocolate shavings.... and in Pakistan we usually get other fruits as well in layers.... now i will share my yum yum Black forest cake recipe... which I made for my own Birthday on my 4 year daughter's request.... :)

moist chocolate cake 1 (I made this in three layers -
cherries pitted halved 1 cup
fruit cocktail 1/2 cup 
sugar 2 tsp
heavy whipping cream 950 ml
icing sugar 5 tbsp
cherries 8 - 10 for top
grated chocolate 
cocoa powder - to sprinkle on top 

first bake the cake, I used the moist chocolate cake recipe and bake in three pans...

then, make the filling.... add the pitted halved cherries in sauce pan... add sugar.... and cook for 2 -3 minutes... till sugar dissolves.... don't dry the juices... 

cool that cherry mixture completely

then add the cream in mixing bowl beat till its start thickening... add icing sugar and beat till soft peaks form

now assembling... place one baked part of the cake on a platter.... cut the dome to flatten the cake

moisten the cake with that cherry syrup... but cake is already moist so don't use more than one or two teaspoon juice... then add a big dollop of whipped cream.... smooth it with spatula

add the grated chocolate over it 

spread some other fruit from a cocktail tin if you want... and cherries....

repeat the same process with second baked cake... moisten that part first layer it with cream, grated chocolate and then fruits...


now put the last part.... moisten... 

cover all over with whipped cream

sprinkle grated chocolate on top and on sides

make swirls with whipped cream on the corner of cake ... and top it with full cherries... in the end sprinkle some cocoa powder

keep it in the fridge for 4 -5 hours before serving.... and enjoy :)
