Black forest gâteau

Layers of chocolate sponge, cream and boozy kirsch cherries provide the building blocks for this classic black forest gateau. We’ve decorated ours with chocolate shards, too, for a more striking aesthetic. Try serving it as an alternative Christmas dessert or as a dinner party show-stopper.
