The Cake Known as the Giant Blackforest Sandwich

One of the folks in office is celebrating her last day in office as she gets assigned to a different project. there's another excuse for me to quickly whip up something in the kitchen.
One of the flavors that I've been meaning to do is a blackforest cake, so I figured now's a good chance to do a version of it. Most of the blackforest cakes I've had is very rich and decadent, sometimes too rich that it can be quite off-putting after a couple of bites. I also settled for a simple cake decor - did not have much time anyway!

I was hoping that version will not too be rich (yeah don't worry about the double cream that I whipped), made on the chocolate cake base that I think is beginning to settle with me (just minor tweaks on the flavoring) but the at least i think i can call this cake base recipe 'my own'!

[ i found the cake to be not as moist as it was the last time i made a similar version - perhaps because it was baked in a different oven, but the top bit rose almost evenly that it didn't need any leveling... anyway, it was well received... or my officemates are just being polite! haha!]


Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
