Since a Black Forest Gateau is a 70s classic I decided to go for the full 70s kitsch when decorating it!
The hardest thing about this cake was actually leaving it after decorating it on Saturday night until we had it for pudding at Sunday lunchtime!
But it was worth the wait...
I was glad that my mum and dad are around just now (stopping off to spend some time with us after returning from dropping my wee brother off in the US), so that there were more to share it with. Not because I didn't like it, but rather so that I wasn't tempted to eat too much of it myself, although it is quite rich and so a little goes a long way!
I highly recommend trying out this recipe and it would be perfect for a special occasion.
Also joining in with the Bake Along this week was Calum (12) who made this gluten free and dairy free lemon Madeira Cake.
