TODAY IS SOMETHING ON A STICK DAY AND NATIONAL BLACK FOREST CAKE DAY!
There’s lots of foods to have on a stick. Corn dogs, cotton candy, pickles, or frankly anything at the State Fair. Today, to celebrate our wooden cylindrical utensil friends, we had some fruit on a stick!
Mmmmm. Tasty fruit servings…
For Black Forest Cake, we couldn’t travel all the way to the Schwarzwald. Then again, the cake isn’t even really named after the region, so much as it is named after the liquor that’s named after the region, the Schwarzwalder Kirschwasser. It’s basically cherry shnapps. It’s hard to say no to any kind of chocolate cake/kuchen/torte. We decided on having dinner at the Black Forest Inn in Minneapolis where we could enjoy some schnitzel and cake. Look upon the beauty!
It’s not the kind of cake that turns you into a lederhosen-wearing beer swiller, but it is up there as far as flavor sensations. The cake and the cream go so well together, and the cherry bits add little bits of pop to the texture. It’s also a little boozey, which can be fun for some.
Tomorrow is another cake day, Lemon Chiffon Cake!
