My hubby celebrated his Birthday recently, his all time favourite cake/dessert is Black Forest Torte, if it's on the menu I always know that's what he will order. A couple of months back there was a recipe in the Courier Mail (newspaper) for a Black Forest Torte, so I decided I would make this for Stephen's Birthday. Have you ever made a Black Forest Torte? It was a lot of work plus expensive for the ingredients, it would have been cheaper if I'd have bought a cake.....  It tasted so delicious, I only had one small piece, I am not a fan.  Stephen was surprised and thrilled, phew, thank goodness....
Here it is........

 And a photo with his two gorgeous girls. The third (me) was taking the photo.



  1. Great looking cake and a lovely birthday photo. A loooong time ago I made a lot of tortes. They sure are expensive to make. I remember being very pleased with the little piped chocolate decorations I put on top of my Black Forest tortes.

  2. Gorgeous birthday pic and wow that cake looks fabulous.
