The cake turned out well, tasted great even though I substituted the bing cherry juice for the kirshwasser because I couldn't find that in any liquor store around here.
If I make this again, I will definitely hold off on putting the whipped cream icing on it until I got to my final destination as it sort of slid off the cake during transport.
Even though I couldn't find the cherry brandy, I did put a little Creme de Cocoa along with the vanilla in the whipped cream and got lots of compliments on that. I would actually consider sprinkling that on the cake instead of the brandy just for a try.
I also put mini semi-sweet chocolate chips on top of the cake instead of the chocolate curls with some cherries that I reserved.
I am also not a big "at home" coffee drinker, so I didn't have a teaspoon of strong coffee on hand, so I mixed up some extra strong cafe mocha mix, which did give the butter cream filling a nice coffee like flavor.
