Quick Black Forest Cake
This cake was very chocolatey, dense, and easy. Perfect for my chocoholic sis-in-law's bday. I did not have canned cherry pie filling but I had canned sweet cherries so I made pie filling in a saucepan with some of the juice mixed with cornstarch, sugar, a little lemon juice, and almond extract. I also used mini chocolate chips instead of regular size as suggested by a reader. The cake is a bit on the dry side when served (serve with whipped cream or ice cream) but the few pieces left over were quite dry the next day. I would like to find a way to make it even more moist (was thinking of soaking in cherry brandy) but it was not overly dry that I would not recommend. I think stemmed, hand-dipped dark chocolate covered cherries would make the best decoration (as a last minute thought I picked up a box of regular chocolate covered cherries from the grocery store).

Strawberry Cake III
Delicious! Made it for my daughter's bday, was as delicious and messy as everyone claimed. :) I used dried egg whites as one reader suggested as I was also leary of using uncooked egg whites. I used a dash of cream of tartar suggested by another reader although I'm not sure if did much (but worth a try). I can see that this cake would not be transportable. I made the layers the night before and frosted a few hours ahead of serving. Instead of toothpicks (which could get lost in the cake) I used 3 bbq skewers to hold it together in the fridge and that also helped keeping the plastic film off of the cake. I removed the skewers just before adding bday candles. If you don't mind a cake that is messy and not prone to stand tall once cut, do try this one because there was nothing left afterward.
