My Version of Black Forest Cake

Only seventeen more days before New Year and I decided to clean out my computer of unwanted files and programs and copy the photos I took this year to a cd so I can free space on my hard drive. As I was  browsing through old pictures  I stumbled upon this black forest cake photo. I made it for someone months ago. I meant to blog about it but due to my heavy workload, I had forgotten all about it. I'm sorry to say I won't be sharing a step by step picture of how I made it. I also don't remember where I kept the recipe. Once I find it, I will share it with you. 







The traditional black forest cake uses cherry as filling.  This is my own version -  a chocolaty black forest cake. For the cake base,  I opted to use  chocolate chiffon cake.  I used ganache as filling. I frosted the cake with Italian Meringue butter cream.  Using a  star piping tip, I piped stars on top of the cake and put maraschino cherries on each star.  I shaved chocolate using a vegetable peeler  and garnished the center and side with chocolate shavings.
