    Black Forest Cherry Cake (Made Easy)

    1 pkg. chocolate cake mix
    1 can cherry pie filling
    1 ½ pints whipping cream, whipped with powdered sugar and vanilla to taste
    6 maraschino cherries
    chocolate sprinkles
    Brandy or Rum (if desired)

    Bake cake according to package instructions, 8" round pans are the best. Cool and with a large sharp knife, split each round to make two. You will have four rounds now. Sprinkle each round with Brandy or Rum. I found a nice cake splitter at the super market.

    Place first round on cake plate top down, cover with ½ of cherry pie filling. Place next round on top, bottom up. Ice with ½" of whipped cream. Place next round on top, bottom down. Add remainder of cherry pie filling and place final round on top, top up.

    Ice top and sides of cake with whipped cream, saving enough to decorate top with 9 stars. Top the center star with ½ cherry and the other stars with ¼ cherry. Sprinkle with chocolate and store in refrigerator. If you want to take it to a picnic, use cool whip in place of whipped cream.

        Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Muffin Cake

        2 tablespoons packaged unseasoned breadcrumbs
        Crumb Topping:
        1/4 cup sugar
        3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
        1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
        2 tablespoons butter
        Cake:
        2 cups all-purpose flour
        1-1/4 cups sugar
        1 tablespoon baking powder
        1-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
        1 teaspoon salt
        1/2 teaspoon baking soda
        1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
        1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
        1 stick butter, melted and cooled
        1 cup sour cream
        2 large eggs
        1 cup finely diced cored and peeled apple

        Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 2-quart charlotte mold or soufflé dish, or 9” tube pan and sprinkle with the bread crumbs, tapping out the excess.

        Make Crumb topping: In a small bowl combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside.

        Make Cake: In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, allspice and cloves. In a small bowl, stir the butter, sour cream and eggs until well combined. Stir the butter mixture into the flour mixture just until the batter is smooth and satiny. Stir in the apples. Spread the batter in prepared mold or pan. Sprinkle with the Crumb topping.

        Bake the cake 1 hour, or until the crumbs are lightly browned and cake tester comes out clean. (If using a tube pan, start testing for doneness after 45 minutes). Cool the cake in the mold or pan on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Run a metal spatula or knife between cake and the side of the mold or pan to loosen the cake, then gently invert it onto a work surface and remove pan. Turn it over onto a wire rack and cool completely. Transfer the cake to a serving plate. Serves 6-8

                    Kitty Litter Cake

                    1 spice cake mix or German chocolate cake mix (include ingredients listed in mix)
                    1 white cake mix (include ingredients listed in mix)
                    1 package white sandwich cookies
                    1 6-ounce package vanilla instant pudding mix (include ingredients listed on mix)
                    green food coloring
                    12 small Tootsie Rolls

                    Prepare cake mixes according to package directions (Any size cake pans). Prepare pudding mix according to package directions and chill until ready to use. Crumble white sandwich cookies in small batches in blender. (Scrape often, they tend to stick.) Set aside all but 1/4 cup. To this 1/4 cup cookie crumbs, add a few drops of green food coloring and mix using a fork or by shaking in a jar.

                    When the cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl. Toss with half of the remaining white cookie crumbs and the chilled pudding. (You probably won't need all of the pudding.) Mix it with the cake and feel it; you don't want it soggy, just moist. Gently combine. Line a new, clean kitty litter box. Put mixture into litter box. Put three unwrapped Tootsie Rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until soft and pliable. Shape ends so they are no longer blunt, curving slightly. Repeat with 3 more Tootsie Rolls and bury these in the mixture. Sprinkle the other half of the cookie crumbs over the top. Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly over the top. (This is supposed to resemble the chlorophyll in the litter.) Heat remaining Tootsie Rolls, 3 at a time in the microwave until almost melted. Spread them on top of the cake and sprinkle with cookie crumbs. (Or, only spread 5 of the remaining Tootsie Rolls over the top.) Take one and heat until pliable, and hang it over the side of the kitty litter box, sprinkling it lightly with cookie crumbs. Place the box on a newspaper and sprinkle a few of the cookie crumbs around. Serve with the new scoop.

                      Flourless Chocolate Torte

                      Unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting
                      15 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
                      18 Tbs. (2 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
                      7 egg yolks
                      9 Tbs. granulated sugar
                      1 1/2 Tbs. dark rum or brewed espresso (optional)
                      1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
                      Pinch of salt
                      5 egg whites, at room temperature
                      3 cups raspberries
                      Confectioners' sugar for dusting

                      Preheat an oven to 300؛F. Grease a heart cake pan and dust with cocoa powder. In the top pan of a double boiler, combine the chocolate and butter. Set the top pan over but not touching barely simmering water in the bottom pan and melt, then whisk until well blended. Set aside to cool slightly.

                      In a large bowl, using an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat together the egg yolks, 6 Tbs. of the granulated sugar, the dark rum, vanilla and salt on medium-high speed until pale and very thick, 3 to 5 minutes. Gradually pour in the chocolate mixture and continue beating until well blended. In a deep, clean bowl, using a mixer fitted with a clean whisk attachment, beat the egg whites on medium-high speed until foamy, about 1 minute. Gradually add the remaining 3 Tbs. granulated sugar and continue to beat until medium-firm peaks form, about 2 minutes. Scoop half of the egg whites onto the chocolate mixture and fold them in gently. Fold in the remaining whites just until no streaks remain.

                      Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread it out evenly. Bake until the torte puffs slightly and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out very moist but not liquid, about 40 minutes. Do not overcook. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 30 minutes. To remove the pan sides, set the pan on a can and let the sides slide down. Let the torte cool completely, then cover and refrigerate until very cold, at least 4 hours or up to overnight.

                      Just before serving, garnish the torte with the raspberries and dust with confectioners' sugar. Serves 12 to 14.

                              1 c Irish cream liqueur
                              1 1/2 c chopped nuts
                              1 c semisweet chocolate chips

                              2 tbsp butter

                              Butter an 8x8” pan. In the top half of a double boiler, melt the 3 c semisweet chocolate chips, 1 c white chocolate chips and 1/4 c butter until soft enough to stir. Stir in the confectioner's sugar and Irish cream until mixture is smooth. Stir in nuts. Place mixture in the prepared pan and lay a sheet of plastic wrap over top; press and smooth top down.

                              In the top half of a double boiler, melt remaining chocolates until soft. Remove from heat and with a fork beat in the butter and Irish cream until smooth. Spread topping over cooled fudge with a knife. If a smooth top is important, place plastic wrap over the top. Refrigerate until firm, 1 to 2 hours at least. This fudge can be easily frozen. Makes 24 pieces.

                                Edible Chocolate Roses

                                (I haven't tried this so I don't know how easy it is.)

                                NOTE: Chocolate modeling clay is made by combining melted chocolate and light corn syrup. American pastry chefs invented the recipe and have been using this delicious edible clay to make garnishes and unique decorations. Here is their secret!

                                Ingredients and Preparation:

                                10 oz of chocolate (chopped chunks or chips)
                                1/3 c light corn syrup
                                Note: the chocolate can be substituted with almond bark, or colored candy disks to create different colored flowers

                                1.Melt the chocolate in a microwave for 1 minute. Stir. If chocolate is not completely melted, return to the microwave for 30 seconds at a time and stir until smooth. If you don't have a microwave, place the chocolate in the top of a double broiler over hot water and stir until melted.
                                2. When the chocolate is melted, add the corn syrup and blend.
                                3. Pour the mixture onto a waxed paper sheet.
                                4. Spread the chocolate with your fingers until it's about ½” thick.
                                5. Cover loosely with waxed paper and let it stiffen for at least a couple of hours or overnight. The chocolate will become very pliable.

                                Making a Chocolate Rose:
                                1. Have the kids roll 10 marble-sized balls out of the chocolate clay.
                                2. Place the balls on a waxed paper sheet, about 1 inch apart.
                                3. Place another waxed paper sheet on top. Big or little thumbs can press each marble into a flat disk (about the size of a quarter). Use some pressure!

                                To form the rose:
                                1. Remove 1 disk and curl it into a "teepee" shape, narrow at the top and wider at the bottom.
                                2. Wrap the next disk around the opening of the teepee and the third disk at the back of the teepee. This is the rose bud. Continue adding disks that look like petals. Continue to layer them to create a rose in bloom.
                                3. Roses can be used as edible decorations for a cake or to create a basketful of blooms. They will harden after a few days and can be saved by storing in a cool, dry place.
                                4. Since this recipe is the consistency of modeling clay, you can mold any shape you want.
