Sunny,

I got mine from Phoon Huat. In canned form, labelled "pitted dark sweet cherries". (not the sour type though)

Alternatively, you can also try

S&W brand - Pitted Cherries - Dark, Sweet

- available at Cold Storage. Not so sure about NTUC.

florence,

i'm not one who is too fond of black forest cakes because of the filling. but! i once tried a particular BF cake that had a jelly filling (blackcurrant or something) instead of the usual sweet kind.

ever tried that? if so, do you know how to make it?

We have that in HK too. Instead of fresh and sour cherries for the filling you just use black currant jelly.

Florence,

Bake a cake using your recipe, taste not sweet, I like it.
How do you do your whip cream like those on your cake? Mine was quite soft, can't really get the pattern after piping it on the cake.

Hi Malou,

From your photo, you have overwhipped the cream. Your cream is now in the cotton stage, if you whip it any further it will become like broken up Tofu Fa and you just have to throw away the lot.

You should whip till you can lines on the cream.

Thanks for your insight. Is it possible, my using a dairy whipping cream contributes to this overwhipping? Also, I added the icing sugar during the time when the whipped cream started to become stiff. Maybe this is the cause of its being watery. Anyway, will try to make one again....

Again, many thanks!

Florence

Finally had the guts to try making Black Forest Cake today. My oven cannot be set to 175C. So, I put it at 180C instead. I think it is too hot coz the top crack quite badly. Next time, I will bake it at 170C instead. I put the balance batter into muffin cups and my sons love it.

Wah nice cake. How come you ladies can decorate the cake so nicely :roll: . Any tips to share? Connie, how to you decorate the side to the cake? I tried the tips given by Florence, i.e. hold the cake with both hands and roll over the chocolate chips - result either the cake crack or the cake is out of shape when I put it back on the cake board Evil or Very Mad

Thanks for your compliment. I remembered you did a nice one with the chocolate fan. It was very nicely decorated. As for the sides, I put my palm below the cake board and tilt it slightly and use the other hand to coat the sides with chocolate rice.

Thank you. As I have not master the cake decoration using whipping cream I have no choice but to use chocolate to hide the island: island: Ha!Ha!Ha!
