This Black Forest Cake is elegant, decadent, and gorgeous. Cherries and whipped cream tucked between layers of tender chocolate cake brushed with a cherry syrup is everything a special occasion cake should be.

This gateau is the most German of all cakes: Black Forest Cake! My idea of the perfect version has soft and tender cake layers wielding enough chocolate flavour without being overwhelming.

This cake combines rich chocolate cake layers with fresh cherries, cherry liqueur, and a simple whipped cream frosting.
