Hi Friends....This is my First Post of 2010.I wish that I could blog more recipes this year and make good friends in this blogging world.How did u all Celebrated and Welcomed this New year???Ours was simple and memorable.I baked a Black Forest Cake for the second time and it was perfect this year.For 2009 New Year also I made Black Forest Cake but I was not happy with the out come so made it again and it was very good and looked like a store bought cake.To view my last year's cake click here.
I changed my mind in the last moment to make this cake so I had very less time to bake it from Scratch so I used a store bought chocolate cake mix and bake the batter in two batches to make a 2 layer cake.I used whipping cream for icing the cake and a grated a chocolate bar to spread all over the cake.
1.Follow the instruction on the cake mix and do bake it accordingly.I used a 8" round pan so it took 37 mins for me to get the perfect one.
2.In a bowl take 1 cup of heavy cream and whisk it continously until it forms smooth peaks.Add 3/4 cup of powdered sugar and 1 spoon of vanilla extract and whisk till strong peaks are formed,mix well and store it in fridge and use whenever u want.
3.Place one layer on a cake board,to make the cake stick to the cake board without moving apply little whipping cream to the base and place it.
4.To keep the cake moist,mix 2 spoons of sugar in 2 spoons of water and sprinkle on the cake.Now spread the whipping cream on the cake evenly and now add cut Marshallow cherries and then gently place the second layer on top.
3.Evenly ice the cake with whipping cream.I made a crumble coat 1st and then chilled the cake for 2 hours and then iced the second layer by now I ended up with a perfect Cake with Whipped Cream icing.
4.Grate the chocolate using a peeler,now put the flakes all over the cake,U can decorate it to ur taste and creativity.Once done finally make some Swrills with whipped cream and the put cherries on top.
5.Cake Is ready now.I almost chilled the cake for 4-5 hours before cutting it.Finally welcomed the new year cutting this cake and Wishing that this year all of us should be happy and may the lord shower his love n blessings on us.
