Black Forest Cake

Do you love Black Forest Cake? I do and so does my hubby! In fact, today is his birthday and I made this for him! Here's a way to make it at home that will not disappoint!

Here's what you will need:

1 Can of Cherry Pie Filling
1 Box of Betty Crocker Devil's Food Cake Mix (As well as the ingredients to prepare it.)
Chocolate Candy Bar (I used a Hershey's Special Dark.)
Whipped Cream (I made homemade, you could use cool whip.)
2-9" Cake Pans
Cooking Spray

1. Prepare the cake mix according to the instructions on the box and bake in two 9" cake pans.

2. Drain the juice off of the cherry pie filling. Shave the chocolate bar. (I used a cheese grater.)

3. Prepare the whipped cream, if you are making it at home.
4. Once the cakes are finsihed baking wait 10 minutes before you turn them out onto a cooling rack. Then wait until they are completely cool before you finish the cake.

5. Once the cakes are cool put one on the cake plate. Then smooth whipped cream on the top of the bottom layer.

6. Next put as many cherries as you would like on the whipped cream layer.

7. Ok, it is shaping up! Now layer the other cake on top of the whipped cream/cherry layer. (Carefully!)

8. You are on the home stretch! Just frost the rest of the cake with the whipped cream and garnish with the shaved chocolate, cherries and extra whipped cream!

Enjoy your time baking and eating the fruits of your labor! :)
