Black Forest Cake

The black forest cake has seen several changes throughout the pass few months. The first picture is how we did it for the first time with just almonds stuck halfway. Then, we decided to go with mixed nuts and boy, do I love it! The top is dusted with valrhona cocoa powder and the centre filled with vanilla whipped cream and morello cherries. The layers are brushed with a mixture of the cherry juice and rum. And the whole cake slathered in dark chocolate ganache. Yes, it sure isn’t a traditional black forest gateau. But this is definitely the way I’d like to eat it ^.^
