Creating the Yum

For about a week my daughter has been wanting to make chocolate cake.  As I don't buy things of that nature, I didn't even have the supplies on hand.  Now in this house if I'm going to make chocolate cake, I'm going to make it the way we love.  Black Forest Cake otherwise known as Schwarzwälderkirschtorte.  Old friends of ours once told us it's a Southern German Recipe, but I'm not certain, perhaps you know a detail or two about this cake.  If so I'd love to hear from you.
This cake is three layers of chocolate, whipped cream, and of course cherries.  It's to tall to allow the cake taker lid seal it up so I end up sharing between 1/4 and 1/2 of it with the neighbors.  After all you can't let something this good go to waste.  Are you wishing you were one of my neighbors yet?
I know, I didn't do the best job on my icing, and hopefully the above photo shows why, just look at those layers!  I ran out of my whipped cream so when I was frosting that top part instead of doing one little Rosette at a time I zoomed to the finish hoping I had enough left to dam up the cherries on the top.
Recipe shared upon request.
