Extracts are much stronger than liqueurs, so I wouldn't substitute the Kirschwasser for vanilla. If you have a chocolate cake recipe, you can use it for Black Forest Cake. Or find one here on CakeCentral, I know there are threads about this. Then soak in a simple syrup with Kirschwasser. Google for photos of the cake...Also, make rumballs but use Kirschwasser instead of rum. Enjoy experimenting!
It may sound familiar because something similar happened a year or so ago. A member wanted someone to try a recipe she found. The "meanies" wanted to know why she couldn't do it herself. As the thread devolved and the anti-meanies jumped in, we learned that this member claimed to be a young girl in Georgia who didn't have enough money for ingredients. But s/he kept tripping up and let out a series of half-truths and contradictions. Does this sound familiar?
Beyond Buttercream's Base Cake Recipe is definitely worth it. There's a base recipe with numerous variations. And Jennifer walks you through the entire process, as if she was standing next to you in the kitchen.
