Mom had her workshop last year (I guess) on specialty cakes and dessert and she's so happy to tell me how they created Black Forest Cake from scratch. It was a pricey dessert though, but I will never let that spoil my eagerness to create the latter.
If you want to have something, then invest for it. So the previous months, what I did was save and save so I could have the ingredients needed.
Photos above were taken after chilling the cake and yes, homemade desserts were the best, and less guiltier too. Hehe. (No transportation fee, waste of time, plus more sharing and family bonding).
I still have something I wanna make the next months, and hopefully, I'll be able to bake that. :)
Last words? Craving satisfied!
