Black Forest Crepe Cake
The easiest Black Forest Cake you'll ever make. Decadent in the extreme, you'll only want a sliver of this one. And lets face it, if you can whip up a batch of crepes and you are not afraid of piping whipped cream, this torte can look as good as mine with no dramas at all. What’s not to love? Please remember to post pictures of this one for us all to drool over, with the hashtag #thermomixtress on any and all social media; I promise to repost ad nauseum...(not the best term for something SO delicious.)
