Black Forest Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
Myself, along with the wonderful 5 year old I babysit, like to make goodies on Thursday afternoons while her 2 year old sister and my 1 year old daughter take their naps. She wanted "chocolate cake with cherries" this week, so I found this recipe. To save time, I made the cake and cherry filling last night, and today she helped me make the whipped topping-and gave her input on how to decorate it (looks pretty good, if I do say so myself). The only issue I had was, like other reviewers mentioned, the cake seemed dry. I made a simple syrup and brushed some onto the three layers (not the crumble layer, as it wouldn't crumble). We are waiting for my 7 year old daughter, and her 7 year old brother to get out of school before we "dig in". Hope it tastes as good as it looks!
