Yes, this is a good recipe, however, something is either missing from the ingredients or, misinterpreted in the instructions. If you drizzle the 1/2 cup of Kirsch on the cake layers, then there isn't any liquid in the Icing - aside from the 1 tsp of coffee! Step 3 states to drizzle the 1/2 cup of Kirsch on the cake layers - which, to my knowledge is partly what Black Forrest cake is all about. Step 4 just doesn't make sense then though because, 3-1/2 cups of Icing Sugar and only 1 tsp of liquid (coffee) equals very dry crumble. I've made this twice now - the first time I mixed the 1/2 cup of Kirsch into Step 4. The 2nd time I drizzled the cake layers with the Kirsch (as it should be), and then had to add almost a full cup of liquid to the Icing Sugar mixture (I used milk, cherry juice, and another tsp of coffee). It's also nicer if the drained cherries are soaked in some Kirsch for a while.
