I guess you just wanted to call this a black forest cake. But this is not the recipe for black forest cake (looks like the recipe on the back of the box). Black Forest cake is chocolate cake with whipped cream icing and cherry filling.


Sounds like your grandmother and family enjoyed the cake you made her. Your love was put into it. I too have made this with strawberries and whipped cream for those strawberry lovers who don't like cherries. BRAVO to you! Baking is fun, don"t STOP. Enjoy it with a smile.


That sounds lovely Mercytum. And I'm sure your mum and grand mom and familywere very very pleased!


Don't forget the icing recipe. "Take the lid off the can and then peel the foil top off the can and stick a butter knife in the can and put some on the cake until the whole cake is covered."


Mercytum - Thank you for sharing your love of baking. I'll bet you're family is very proud of your baking and enjoy everything you make. Keep it up and don't be afraid to post other recipes. Don't let snide comments from others keep you from enjoying your baking journey.
