I was a little skeptical of cooking with the brandy eventhough I knew it's just for cooking. I used cherry dessert syrup instead.Make sure that the cake cools before you put the cool Whip on it. I also put it in the refrigerator so that the cool whip would stick better. I used real cherries on top of the cake to prevent any kind of mess. The cake was outstanding! My three year old son loves it and I'm making it for Thanksgiving.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from made the black forest cake for my friend's birthday. made the black forest cake for my friend's birthday. It doesn't look as good as in the pics, but it's still good. Somehow the middle part, the cherries, can't stick in the place, and make the cake jiggle around :) But niweyz, my bday friends and other guests love it and said that it's a very good simple cake. and they finished everything.
