Now a days I have got interest in baking cakes, it all started when Christmas was coming near and wanted to make Christmas cake, so I did make few cakes and it turned out really well but here am gonna write down the recipe of Black-forest cake which I tried and came out really well, it is very easy to make. Here goes the recipe below :

Ingredients for cake :

  • Salt- a small pinch
  • Butter-50 gm

Ingredients for Cake Cream :

  • Amul Cream-200gm
  • Vanilla-2 tsp

Add sugar and vanilla essence and beat 5 more min and see whether the cream has got enough thick to be used as icing! Beat it till it becomes thick and sticks to beater without falling from it. Keep it in fridge for 2 hours.
5.With long knife, split each cake layer horizontally in half. Put some sugar water and then spread the cream in between and then keep the top layer of cake and then again put some sugar water and then do the icing with rest of the cream. Put cherries on top of cake for decoration and sprinkle powdered chocolate on top of the cake. Yummy black forest cake is ready.
