Black Forest Cake 3

I had promised my friend to bake a birthday cake for his wife's birthday but I totally forgot about it! I know... it's so awful of me. I felt really bad about it. Luckily, he gave me another chance to bake him a thanksgiving cake. His wife chose the black forest for her birthday and so I made the black forest cake as the thanksgiving cake. :)

This is 2 layers of moist chocolate sponge cake, brushed with rum simple syrup, a layer of chocolate rum cream, lots of dark bing cherries, and frosted with rum chantilly cream. I was thinking of experimenting with chocolate decorations, but I was a little scared of failure. I should be more adventurous next time, but since the cake is for a special occassion, I decided to play on the safe side.

I found this "Home Made" stickers at Michael's and I thought that it would be perfect for all my cake orders. :) My cakes are as home made as it can be. :) I'm really grateful for all my friends and families who constantly encourage and support me in my baking. Alvin has also been such a support for me. I hope I continue to learn and improve in the future.
