Black Forest Cake

Black Forrest Cake      
Make sure the layers are cooked through and not left too moist. It won't hurt the flavor but it might make the cake a little too wet to be structurally sound when the liquid from the cherry pie filling soaks into the cake.
Black Forrest Cake


1 Recipe - Black Magic Cake
1 Recipe - White Chocolate Frosting
2 Cans - Cherry Pie Filling

  • Bake the cake layers in two 9" layers.
  • While the cake layers are baking and cooling, make the White Chocolate Frosting
  • When cake layers are cool split each into two layers
  • Stack the cake layers, putting 1/2 can of cherry pie filling between each layer. Leave the top layer with no cherries on it
  • Frost the sides of cake with the frosting coming up and over the top by about 1/2 or 3/4 inch all the way around
  • Pipe large (tip 2D) stars around the edge on top of the overlapped frosting
  • Use the last 1/2 can of pie filling to fill the top inside of the surrounding stars
