This Black Forest cherry dessert in a glass is the perfect dessert for special occasions. People who know me probably know that I have quite a sweet tooth. You can easily see that on the blog. I am often asked who actually eats all of this. Yes, that’s not an easy question to answer, because it’s slowly becoming more and more difficult to distribute the things.

At the beginning everyone was open and happy when I brought them something. Now I think I’m starting to annoy people a bit with it and, for example, I don’t go to certain neighbors anymore because they’re starting to put on a pained smile. That’s not to say that what I make doesn’t taste good (your numerous recreated recipes and comments prove otherwise), but obviously you can have too much of sweets.

Only now, especially at Christmas, I’m preparing a lot for the blog, which is why I unfortunately have a lot to give away. I think people just have to go through it. For example, I made this incredibly delicious Christmas Black Forest cherry dessert in a glass, which is based on the famous Black Forest cake. However, it wasn’t quite as powerful and instead of a chocolate base I used speculoos biscuits. Definitely just as delicious and a little more Christmassy! If you want to know how to recreate the dessert, read on here:
