This is a classic Black Forest cake I made for my dad's birthday, which is today.
When we were growing up, my sister and I always chose this as our birthday cake, and there are many photos of us stuffing our mouths with big forkfuls of it. It has a lot of good memories attached to it...neon cherries and all. If you use the best ingredients, it tastes like heaven. And making your own sour cherries, well, that is perfection. It was enjoyed by everyone, and a few bites are waiting in fridge for the first lucky person who claims it.
