"Pretty Much a Piece of Heaven" Black Forest Cake
June 21, 2017

This cake was great. I did make changes that my family loved. I doubled the icing like the other reviewers suggested and added some vanilla to the icing. I used a mix of sour cherries, sweet cherries and maraschino cherries (all canned)in the batter, in between the layers and on top. I used extra cherry juice in the batter and added a few Tb of sour cream. I used the left over Cherry juice and combined with pectin and cherries to make a gel for the middle layers. After adding the cherries on top I melted chocolate and drizzled over the cherry top and down the sides. It was moist, tasty and beautiful.
