Black Forest, My Special Cake!



Before all, I’m sorry I can’t present you the photo of this cake. I baked a cake long time ago before Instagram is trended. Hehe. Besides, I don’t have any intended to document and taking photo my work for archieve. Hope you all don’t mind it :).

Well, I heard yesterday my cousin will bake Black Forest. No doubt, my random mind lead me to memorize the time, my moment when  I baked Black Forest at that time. The recipe I present you is taken from my mom secret book of cake recipe. Yes, she used to has hobby baking a cake and noted also collected the interesting recipe. After I remember, There were 2 times I bake Black Forest with my barely hand. First, at my 16th birthday and second, hidden story :p.

28 State Senior High School, Jakarta, have unusual tradition to the one who celebrated birthday at the time. I didn’t really remember whether it was just for my batch or another batch is same. In a brief, the one who celebrated birthday was the one who brought cake. So here I was, 16th birthday and intended to bring my very own birthday cake created by me. I remembered, I baked the batter, but my mom make the cream spread also decorate the cake. No doubt the cake looked so gorgeous. Haha. Like I said, I have passion to create my own handcraft. Cakes or things. But I really don’t have good hand. I can’t make something with gorgeous look even a neat one. Okay, back to the story. Because it mid test was held at the time, i brought the cake and board it out to school canteen refrigerator. After finished, I called my friends, especially my classmate and shared it to them. I didn’t want to tell them that I baked that cake, but after most of them told me it was a delicious cake, I told them. So, it was a happy moment. I wasn’t fail anyway ^_^.

So, that was all. I counted there was just two times I baked Black forest.
This cake special. Very special.
