Black Forest Layer Cake

Black forest layer cake is a delicious and fun cake to make. Did I mention easy? Oh yes! I even cheated a little-shhh! I used a box mix for my two layer cakes. You can, too! I won’t tell unless you are a purist with cakes then feel free to use your favorite chocolate cake recipe and just bake it up in two 8 or 9 inch round pans!  I used sweet dark cherries sold in a can. I found them in the aisle with the applesauce—not the aisle with the canned cherry pie filling-go figure! That’s just a tip to save you some time as you navigate the food store aisles. You can use regular whipped cream for this cake but I chose to make the cream the shining star in this cake. I used Mascarpone cheese to make it extra special! Hope you enjoy my black forest layer cake!
