Blackforest cake

Sunday, 24 February 2008

Ta's birthday tmrw so decided to bake him a cake. I asked him what cake he wants and this fella come and tell me he wants a blackforest cake wor.


Of all the yummy cakes in the world why must he choose that cake.


I think blackforest cakes are horrible. But i think the worst cake is cheesecake. oh yes, i absolutely hate cheesecake ok. after eating one or two spoonful, i wanna throw up already.


anyway he wants so i make.

Black Forest Cake

Stabilized Whipped cream filling

500ml whipping cream

90g icing sugar sugar

1tbsp rum/cherry liquor

1 tsp Unflavored Gelatin

3 tsp water

1. Soak gelatin in 2 tsp water for 5 minutes, add 1 tsp water and melt over a boiling water bath or in a microwave.
2. Cool to room temperature. Beat cream till soft peaks form, sprinkle sugar, add rum and beat again.
3. Pour in Gelatin and beat well till stiff peak consistency is achieved.
4. Refrigerate till use.

Cherries in syrup

Pitted fresh cherries – 1 ½ cup
Sugar - 2 cups
Water - 2 cups
Cherry liquor / rum - 1 tbsp

1. Mix sugar and water, boil in a thick bottomed pan, with constant stirring, till the sugar dissolves and the syrup thickens.
2. Add cherries, remove from fire, add liquor/rum, keep it covered for 10-12 hours. 3. Drain cherries on a sieve; reserve the syrup for moistening the cake.

NB. i think this is too sweet lor, if i were to do again, i would really cut down the amount of sugar, to maybe 1/4 cup. by the way, i just use a mug to measure everything cause i think all they want is the ratio.


I tipu-ed.

I used tesco chocolate sponge cake as the base.

Couldnt be bothered making the sponge.

There are much nicer food in the world i would spend more time making.

Like Mexican buns!!! :D

Black Forest is yummy, love the cherries but Malaysian Secret Recipe version got no liquor/rum so wish I could eat your version instead.
