The truth is...

my Black Forest Cake did not turn out as I had imagined. I could tell you where the recipe came from but I'd likely be sued for libel.

At first it appeared to have great potential.





But after things cooled off, they didn't quite want to stay together.



Vowing not to trash the whole thing, (it really tastes good) I tried to paste it together a little.



The artistes among you will quickly recognize the cherries on top as a distraction to the disaster below.

Finally I realized that I had forgotten a key ingredient-



the shaved chocolate on top.

When Mr. Sophanne saw the final product, he doubled over and choked on his own spit. I don't give that much credence though because he guffawed when I bought a 9x12 baking dish last week.

It now occurs to me why they have cake baking contests at county fairs.

Don't you wish it was summer and I could adventure every day?

Kind of sad looking, but I'm sure it was yummy!

My Mom said it didn't matter what it looked like on the outside as long as it tasted good. "You don't judge a book by the cover. Why would you judge a cake that way?" I loved that woman!!!

I had the same experience with a black forest cake about a year ago. I have crappy luck with 2 layer cakes... always...

I have yet to make a successful 2 layer cake. Heh.

Layer cakes = very tricksy, indeed. I would happily have taken that monster off your hands, however, and nommed it with Great Enthusiasm.

The inside of my mouth doesn't care what the outside of the cake looks like.
