Black forest cake is totally amazing. 

We love this cake because it combines rich chocolate cake layers with cherries and a whipped creamed frosting. Did I forget ti mention the cherry liqueur too? That also makes the cake taste so great. 

At one point growing up this was my favorite cake for the obvious reasons. However my tasted buds later evolved to appreciate other flavors of cakes and different types of delicious desserts.
