Black forest cake was created for the true and devoted lover of chocolate and cherries. It is a decadent and beautiful dessert typically created by layering chocolate cake, whipped cream, and cherries. The topping is decorated with maraschino cherries and chocolate shavings atop a thick bed of whipped cream. Rum is one of the ingredients in this recipe that make the cake as moist as it is rich. Its amazing taste is unforgettable!
