Black Forest Birthday Cake #WeekendCooking

It’s November and that means we’ve been having our fill of homemade Black Forest cake. I make one every year for the husband’s birthday (this is last year’s).

I used this chocolate layer cake recipe from King Arthur. But this time, instead of boiling water, I made coffee instead. I used frozen cherries to make the cherry filling (recipe here).

I decorated with freshly whipped cream, shaved chocolate, and fresh raspberries.

It’s a five layer cake! Best consumed within the next few days.

Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book reviews (novel, nonfiction), cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, quotations, photographs, restaurant reviews, travel information, or fun food facts. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. You do not have to post on the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog’s home page
