Today I went to Der Beck and attempted to order a slice of Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte. Aka, Black Forest cherry cake. It looked like glorious chocolate and cherry layers of awesome. But apparently the staff at Der Beck needs more supervision when filling orders because when I got home and opened the package, I found this…
In photos I guess it might be hard to tell, but this is a raspberry torte, and not cherry. Sadface. And I had posted a similar cake way back when, but I guess you go with the hand you were dealt.
Luckily, raspberries are my very favorite fruit, so I could live with this.
We had raspberries on top, a layer of soft chocolate cake, a cream layer, and the crust had a hard chocolate top and a crispy bottom. Overall, a delight.
Side note: As a quick follow-up to my earlier financial fun post…. I have yet another reason why I can’t get anywhere. I opened my mailbox today to find (no, not my tax form), but a voucher for 10€ off my next train ticket from Deutsche Bahn. So how can I possibly resist a coupon situation? I guess that means I have to take a trip sometime before the end of February….
