Can it taste more festive?
Black Forest Cake is one of the most sort after cakes during Christmas. It is one of my all time favourites. Now, we know it looks good, tastes creamy and awesome and costs often a little more than the rest, but how many of us have actually dared to make it?

Well, here is a step by step explanation of approaching it the simple way:-

Cake ingredients:

Powdered sugar: 3/4th cup, Maida: 3/4th cup, cocoa powder: 3 tbsp, butter: 3 tbsp, warm water: 3 tbsp, baking powder: 3/4th tsp, egg: 3 nos.

Syrup ingredients:

Granulated sugar: 4tbsp, water: 3/4th cup, rum (optional): 3 tbsp

For topping and filling

1&1/2 cup fresh cream, gelatin: 1&1/2 tbsp, icing sugar: 6 tbsp, egg white: 2 nos., warm water: 3 tbsp, cherries: 1&1/2 cup, grated chocolate slabs: 80 gm

1. Mix the cake ingredients. Pour into greased baking tin (6" dia). Place in preheated oven (220 deg C) for 15 to 20 minutes. Cool and cut into three pieces horizontally.

2. Soak first piece with 1/3rd syrup. Beat cream in a bowl over ice till thick. Add icing sugar and gelatine (dissolved in 3 tbsp warm water). Fold in stiffly beaten egg white. Pour 1/4 th cream mixture onto the piece of cake, cover with some chopped cherries and grated chocolate.

3. Place next piece of cake on top,soak with 1/3rd syrup, cover with 1/4th of cream, cherries and grated chocolate.
