    Scandigirl's Note:

    When our daughter decided to enter 'Kinderfest' cooking competition in our hometown during Octoberfest, she was sure to win!!! Ah, but just a small glitch, her precious Black Forest Cake had shifted and was slightly lopsided!!! Ah, but she received a big reward from her parents, as we were so proud of our little girls achivement...

      My cake did not turn out well at all. I think it was me. I followed the directions to the best of my ability, but cooked the cake in regular 9 inch pans instead of the springform (which I don't own). The cake turned out very dense and not cake-like at all. I also did not like the almonds in the cake. Hopefully someone else is a better baker than I.

      This 5-star rating is for the _filling_ in this recipe which I used for my pull-a-bit-from-here-a-bit-from-there Black Forest Cake. Thanks for what looks to be a great cake-recipe -- certainly the filling was superb!
