Valentines Day 2014

Since Penny and I had such a big event for our anniversary.  We planned to keep Valentines Day low key.  (We didn't really end up keeping to that.)  The plan involved a fun dinner and dessert.  I'm not much of a cook or a baker but wanted to try making something new.  So I offered to bake a cake.  

Penny looked for cakes on Pinterest and found just the thing.  

The cake from portal!!  We did some googling and found a bunch of different recipes and settled on a Black Forest cake recipe from  

 Making the Filling

Making the Filling

I didn't think to take pictures until it was too late.  I just got pictures of making filling and cooling the cakes.



Here's the finished cake.  It tasted really good.  I did get help from Penny mixing the cream and covering with crumbs.
