Do you generally end up ordering Black Forest Cake from the baker’s because you think it takes too long to make? Next time, just bring home (or make by yourself) a chocolate sponge, and you can prepare the Black Forest Cake right in your kitchen and that too within minutes.


The sugar-soaked cake gets a creamy twist and tangy notes from the layer of whipped cream and cherries, while it derives a none-can-refuse-me look from the garnish of chocolate curls and juicy cherries. Go for dark chocolate curls, for additional eye appeal.


Serve this delicious cake on occassions like Christmas , Children's Day , Valentine's Day and Thanksgiving to make them all the more special.
