cake

oh whow! this is quite possibly THE greatest cake i have ever made in my life. cinta and i were in wellington for kalem and rich’s birthday weekend. and what does one do on birthdays??? eat cake!

i’ve never actually made a black forest cake before, or eaten one that i can really remember – they’re not the most common vegan item to find! but once requested, i cannot deny a birthday baking desire! from what i can recall, it’s basically oodles of cream and cherries, and cake soaked in dark cherry juice.

So we found a jar of cherries in the “new world”:

cherries

luckily they had all the other important things, like cremalta and gluten free flour (kalem is vegan and rich can’t eat gluten).

the byrne girls took over the garrett st kitchen (ably assisted by the wonderful apron in residence):

mixing

to me, black forest cake =

+ 2 dark chocolate sponge cakes

+ cherry and jam (sandwiched between the cakes)

+ chocolate buttercream icing

+ vanilla buttercream icing

+ chocolate sprinkles and more cherries to decorate

and VOILA!

review from mike:

“this is the best cake i’ve had since last time you were here!”
