Have I got one. Can anyone recommend a good black forest cake, preferably in/near the East Bay, but potentially travelable? Looking for a whole cake, not just a slice. Please no Merritt Bakery.
My ideal BFC has moist yet fluffy cake with a mild chocolate flavor, a healthy taste of kirsch and cherry, pieces of/whole cherries in the filling, and good frosting. Way too easy for the chocolate cake and chocolate frosting to overwhelm the cake—one of the reasons I like German chocolate cake is that it seems to have a lighter/less saccharine hand with the cocoa.
