A Send-Off Cake..



This is a cake that I made a couple of weeks back for a send-off potluck. Friends of ours moved back to India, so I thought of making this for them. I wanted to make Deeba's Black Forest Gateau. But this is what I finally could come up with.



For the sponge, I used the Pillsbury German chocolate ready cake-mix. I used 4 cakes of 8"x8", sliced each horizonatally. I used a filling of chopped cherries and pineapple with whipped cream and confectioners sugar. The cake had 3 layers and the top and sides were iced again with whipped cream and confectioners sugar. On top of the icing, I used chocolate shavings and gratings of Dairy Milk Chocolate and Maraschino cherries for decorating. I chilled this cake in the fridge for a day.
I was satisfied with the outcome of the cake, but my husband and me both felt that a little more of the filling and icing would be better the next So next time, will keep that in mind. Only realised too late that I again didn't take pictures of the sliced pieces of cake :(.
