I am sure at some point of time in a person’s childhood; one would have eaten the localized Blackforest from neighbourhood confectionaries which are in the form of whipping cream and chocolate sponges, topped with glazed cherries and chocolate flakes. So, in a way, the few Blackforests we have at sgdessert.com didn’t leave a deep impression.
This time round, we have chosen to have Four Leaves’ Blackforest cake back to back with Mezza9 and we felt that the choice is pretty clear. We definitely like Four Leaves’ Blackforest Classic. In our definition, we felt that this version of Blackforest is a bridge between the all-time childhood favourite to the more authentic ones.
Unlike the extreme sourness of the cherries, the ones in here are sweeter and do not have the bitterish after-taste of Kirsch. In addition, the fresh cream is very light with an acceptable level of sweetness. What makes it different is its chocolate whipping cream and its higher cake content, making the overall combination pretty light to be finished by one.
