Black Forest Bundt Cake with Truffle Frosting

Do You Know the History of the Black Forest Cake?

 

Many people think that this cake is named directly after the Schwarzwald mountain range of southwestern Germany, but in fact its name comes from the specialty cherry liquor known as as Schwarzwälder Kirsch(wasser) made in that region. This liquor is the ingredient that originally gave this cake its distinct flavor.  Traditionally, Black Forest Cake is made up of several layers of dark chocolate cake and decorated with a light whip cream with sweet or tart European cherries between the layers.
