Black Forest Cake II
February 20, 2007

The cake came out rather well. I used about 1 1/2 cups of sugar for the filling instead of 3 1/2 cups as suggested from the posts below. I also added one tbsp of coffee. The texture of the filling was absolutely fine and i had no problems with it. however, i think the next time i will double the amount of ingredients used as the filling was hardly enough to cover all 3 layers. I used cherry rum instead of Kirsch and soaked the cake overnight like some ppl said but i could actually hardly taste the alcohol at all. I'd suppose it is probably bcos it's not Kirsch. I also added about 1/2 cup of sugar to the whipping cream. ALl in all, the cake was not too sweet and it has a very good presentation!! Also, for those who cannot cut cakes into half, try using a thread and wrap it around the cake circumference. Pull it towards you and ta-da! a beautifully cut cake with no crumbs or uneven sides!
