My baking is jinxed, and i am horrible with cakes. I have a tough time trying to get the out of box cakes to come out well. Having said that, I had a lovely time trying this one out. I followed the recipe to the book, and the cake baked perfectly! I couldn't find the 'sour' cherries, and the kirsch liquor, i instead used the regular canned cherries (one sweet and one tart to balance out any mistakes) and simply used the syrup from the can to moisten the cake. I also did a choclate ising for the top and sides of the cake and it was perrrfect. While cutting and assembling the layers, the top layer of one of the cakes broke off, so i simply put it together in another dish and poured all the leftover can syrup and some cherries, and that was very good too. Me and my husband ate it for a week after :) I recieived a lot of compliments for the black fores cake and this was my very first cake made from scratch.
