Rockin the World …One Cupcake at a Time

National Black Forest Cake Day


Today, March 28th, is National Black Forest Cake Day…yes, there really is a national day for this delectable dessert.

The black forest cake originated in the 16th century in the Black Forest region in Germany.

I recently came across this Black Forest Cake recipe (click here for recipe) on a friend’s dessert blog ~ Desserted Planet and you’ve gotta check it out…and you’ve got to make her family recipe. She is a fabulous chocolatier – she makes the most unbelievable chocolate covered cherries (my personal favorite) and she is absolutely famous for her chocolate covered marshmallows. 

As you know, I am a baker and I love a new challenge. This cake isn’t complicated but it does take time to make all the components.

This black forest cake is a moist chocolate cake layered with a rich chocolate ganache, sweetened whipped cream, and a sweet dark cherry sauce. I chose to use a chocolate buttercream frosting and it proved to be a great choice.

A little treat every once in a while is a fabulous thing!…so grab a cup of coffee and a fork and indulge!
