IF RECIPE IS FOLLOWED, this cake is by far the best "not from scratch" cake I have ever tasted, and so easy. HOWEVER, IT DID NOT START OUT THAT WAY. I made the cake 2 days ahead as suggested by others which was a good idea. I then deviated from the recipe and used the "cool whip frosting" recipe suggested by others and that was a flop, literally. I don't know if it was because I used skim milk, but the frosting literally melted off the sides of the cake. I scraped it all off the cake, used the whipping cream as directed in the recipe and it worked perfectly. Even my husband who always requests my homemade black forest cake for his birthday says he wants this one next time. Thanks. YUM!!!
