The making of authentic Black Forest Cake

In Germany, I headed out to Freiburg were I had some spare time to grab lunch and explore the city a bit. Later on, we all met up to visit a very nice cake shop called Cafe Schmidt to enjoy a very special treat, but also see how the treat was made. Black Forest Cake! While being in Black Forest, it seemed almost necessary to at least try the cake, right?

The lady at the cake shop gave us a demonstration on how the cake was made, right from scratch to finish! I could not believe how much cream she put on the cake! but regardless my mouth was watering and I could not wait to try it.

Well I did and it was very delicious. I would describe it as being very light and fluffy while still having that rich chocolate favour. The cherries in the middle really made it all come together for a perfect balance.
