The Making of a Black Forest Cake

People say that the place serving the best Black Forest cake (or Black Forest Gateau as many call it) is without a doubt the Black Forest in Germany. There are many stories surrounding the question on how the Black Forest cake got created for the very first time. One thing for sure – unless you use Schwarzwaelder Kirschwasser (Black Forest Kirsch) in the cake, it will not be a real Black Forest Cake.
