Nearly Authentic Black Forest Cake

There are so many variations on a Black Forest Cake, but they really miss the mark. This nearly authentic black forest cake gives you all the traditional flavors with some of the shortcuts we busy people need!

Being Czech, I am all about all things Bavarian, chocolatey, rich, and decadent. We are neighbors with Bavaria afterall, and the cross over blessedly gave us the Black Forest Cake. But in the States, a Black Forest cake typically just means a lack luster chocolate cake, with overly sweet cherry filling and a buttercream frosting that just puts the sickly sweetness into overdrive. Hard pass.
